To be continued... Nigel feel free to have a go :o)
And then there's Sarah's gorgeous CJ. I was going to go for Just Like a Pill, then it changed to Fight For Your Right and then I settled for Present Tense. For me, it's the reasons people give that swing it far more than the song and whether I like it or not and that's what I based my LOs on for this song:
I wanted to do a shadow of the past so I found this monster image online and then copied it in pencil, cut it out and painted it black the eyes are red paint. The background is blue, maroon and black paint. I wanted the flap to open so I cut it off and reattached it at the side then underneath I added an acetate panel and inside I put strips with words on like lost, angry, loneliness to represent the past that Sarah talks about in her journal. There are blank strips for anyone to add to if they want and then it can be sealed if Sarah wants to leave the past where it belongs.
On the back I wanted the opposite of the darkness so painted yellow with rays. Sarah used the image of her tattoo in another CJ we were in together and did you know if you google certain words the image comes up :) that's how I got it anyway. I added the rest of the lyrics of her favourite lines in the rays using a pink pen.
Once again I created the same flap opening on the opposite side, this time I put strips in with hope and finding strength and then I left the rest blank for others or Sarah to define her own present which as she says is joyful and happy.
I hope this goes some way to representing how Sarah feels about the words in this song... oh and I've since signed the outside bottom flap bit but took the photo prior to doing this. :) Sian x
