Version IX

Scrapping the Music has just finished celebrating the first half of its blogaversary month!

The first challenge this month was to match the work with the design team member : .)
I'd say, "here's a hint" but the challenge closed Sunday night at midnight central time, so instead you get to see my piece, LOL!

I choose to do an art journal entry to the lovely Mr. Gwen Stefani's, uh...I mean Gavin Rossdale's song, The Sound of Winter  : .P

Like so many of Eddie's songs, Gavin's song had a lot of great lyrics that I could have used, I did these to go with my meditating woman...

I subjected myself to a lot of anxiety creating the page... I made eight versions before I was happy with the final piece.  Really, 9 total...

At least I have a bunch of pretty backgrounds to cut up to use for ATCs, heh!

*     *    *     *     *

For the second half of the blogaversary event,  for each of the songs chosen by the design team members, you can do a piece and have an entry placed in the drawing, so if you do all six songs, you have 6 chances to win...Go HERE to see all the other pieces that the design team created!!!

I picked my other favorite song of the bunch Gotye's Somebody That I Used to Know.

(You know that you've sung this version while driving your car!!!  : .P)

(click on the pix to see it clearer!)

Me & my Starbucks... unrequited love! LOL!!!

Come play along, we've got some GREAT prizes!!!

Yay! You showed the other pieces! oooo...that sure is a lot of pretty versions you don't like! Ha! I know what you mean. But really, you could put those in a frame! Love the end result, the grey, purple, the kind of india look to it!

And you really crack me up! That piece you did with Starbucks is hilarious! Frame that one too! LOL! Starbucks/Siren...definitely...hypnotic!

Awesomeness Girl!

And I can't even believe how many background you made for your inspiration page. I love all of them and can't wait to see what you do with them - you have such a creative mind!!!!
All kidding aside, your layout for your song is so cool! I love everything about it.
