Stay At Home CJ - December Reveal - Song Lyrics

This month in the stay-at-home CJ, we have all been working on my (Sarah's) background :

The theme this time was song lyrics.

As ever, we have a varied bunch of fantastic entries to share .....

Katie's up first this month - with her cheerful interpretation of Happy by Pharrell Williams
Next Pat was inspired by "Just Like A Pill" by Pink - I love that skyline!
Lou's entry was based upon the lyrics of "Loving Angels" by Robbie Williams 
Virginia's dark brooding silhouette is "livin' on the edge" - inspired by Aerosmith
Carmen has gone the typographical route this month (love the flowery Os :) ) with this entry based on the song No More The Fool by Elkie Brooks
Gill's fab collage was inspired by the Foreigner Classic "Waiting For A Girl Like You"
Sami had the following to say about her entry: "I chose 'Into the Mystic' by Van Morrison, one of my all time favourites. It is a song I have always loved and evokes a lot of imagery for me, of love, magic and mystery.  I cut the woman out of a magazine, the artist is Iain Lowe. I have a picture of Avalon as the destination at the top of the page as this is where my gypsy soul belongs!  I used paints, stencils, chalk inks and pens to complete the page"
Here's my own page.  The song I chose is Cochise by Audioslave, a brilliant song, and I love this line in particular.  The drowning lady is painted in acrylics, based upon a photo by talented Russian photographer Kassandra.  The lettering is white Posca pen outlined with a pencil.
And last one just in from Pam - in her own words: "It is Paolo Nuttini's 'Autumn'- it always makes me a good kind of sad as it reminds me of my Mum :) I love the lyrics and these are my favourite lines"

Next month, we are getting our culture on!  It's the turn of Virginia's lovely background, and the theme is "Shakespeare" - forsooth!!


  1. Good grief! What gorgeous entries this month - I feel I let the side down a tad - my typography didn't happen like I saw it in my head. Must practise more. I love, LOVE all the other pages. Wowzers!

  2. Are you like med - do you sing the lyrics while you read them? Great varied selection
    I think we can safely say this cj is a great sucess

  3. Fab pages. I'm kicking myself I didn't join in. Next time.

  4. They all look amazing! Sarah, I love your drowning girl!

  5. Crikey aren't they all so different Sarah - fabulous interpretation on these!
