April 15th, Prompt #36

THE PROMPT: It's No Secret
THE SONG: Everybody Knows by Concrete Blonde
I really played with this one. No plans just got out my paints and glitter mist and this and that and I would not allow myself to change anything. When it went on the page it was there for good. It was fun to play! I used the title and a few words out of the song for my inspiration.


I had all of these great pics of my parents and wanted to document how much I loved them.

Well everyone knows that ART ROCKS so why not scrap about it :)this was a lot of fun to do and as soon as I saw the picture I knew this was what I wanted to do for this months prompt!

the lyric I picked "everybody knows its now or never" and the prompt "its no secret" combined in my head to make an upbeat type thing. I just wanted something artsy without alot of thought with happy colors. The bikes and the swirls/doodles to me convey the "get your ass up and go" that they lyrics spoke to me.

Lyrics from the song "The Fly" by U2. The background is 3 papers cut up and pieced back together, glimmer misted and gesso dripped/stamped. The photo is heavily photoshopped with texture.

I so love this song. Brings back so many memories. The journaling is about me being an alcoholic but also about when you are in a bad relationship or pretty much anything else where it's a bad situation & everyone else knows but you can't see it because you're to close to the situation.
