Drudging In The Long Parade

Do you ever hear a song and a line just hits you hard?
The other night Dave and I were watching something to tv
When I heard just one line out of a song and I knew I had to Google the lyrics
And use them on a page.
So.. guess what??
I did just that!


Inspired by the song and with a kick from the Show Us Your Stuff May challenge
I’ve used texture paste to adhere and back my photo.


I also used texture paste and texture paint to colour the very cool wood veneer from D-lish Scraps 


Also from D-lish Scraps is the gorgeous resin flower,
Circle washi tape, heart flair (the handmade part for the challenge),


tiny heart beads, grey chevron washi tape,
Text washi tape (LOVE THIS ONE!), plastic doily and heart button.


And the reason the line “I’ll try to be your light in love” struck a chord…


What’s your favourite song right now?
What were the last lyrics that hit a chord for you?


Pin It Now!


  1. Love this LO ! Music is such a powerful thing !

    "That's the power of a song
    When it grabs you by the heart
    It's gonna find you when it wants to
    No matter where you are
    That's the miracle of music
    Love's the only thing as strong
    That can move you when you hear it
    That's the power of a song"

    Power of A Song by Randy Houser.

  2. My dear, you are more than my light.

    You are the train light that is coming down the dark tunnel, either running to me or gently pushing from behind...

    Theres no doubt that it is my favourite light!
    Thank you, once again, for being you. More than I could have ever asked for.
