Janies play in Lisas Music and Lyrics.

My latest, in Lisa's Music & Lyrics journal. I didn't realise how hard it was going to be to choose a song I loved, and that I would love to interpret 2 dimensionally. I loved and enjoyed a number of Aussie songs, but 2/2 artistically depicted had already been chosen. I thought it best to go in another direction, so I eventually chose to go with Send in the Clowns by Stephen Sondheim. I had been saving images for three likely  to be used songs, so already had a number of nice pics collected. I cut them out, and started playing with them on paper, until I saw in my mind's eye what I wanted it to look like. A dark moody background was called for and this was achieved with Lindy's starburst sprays, printed tissue & stencils. Once an interesting depth was achieved i stuck down my collage elements into a predesigned picture. Below are the 3 finished pages
Outside of the flap I created and stuck on.

inside the flap - the lyrics to the song. The water blotches represent tears 😢

The main finished double spread; faces you can recognise.....?
