This prompt is a little more on the “edgy” side… but I encourage you to think about how YOU can make it fit into YOUR comfort zone!! The song has a curse word (or two) in it as you can see by the title… but I’ve also included the clean version as the second song in the player on the sidebar so those who don’t want to hear any language can still hear the song and get ideas from it.
THE PROMPT: Look at Me NOW!
THE SONG: FUCK YOU by Cee Lo Green
CLEAN version in the player as “forget you” to your right in the sidebar.
Written Lyrics HERE
Thanks to my Guest Hosts!! I’ve been flat out too busy to be able to get to this. Just spent 8 hours in a car today… and don’t have it in me to create anything. BUT the post goes up without me!! YAY!
ETA: I somehow missed CHRISTI had posted her page EARLY!! Yes. That’s it. I’m blaming early.lol
Ok, I gotta admit, I loved this song! The lyrics didn’t exactly “speak” to me, though. So I picked out a few and rearranged them to express what I wanted to say! Which is, that I love love my hubby, and even after almost 15 years of marriage…he’s still my best friend. (See how I leaned in exactly the opposite way from the direction of the song? I invite you to join the rebellion!)
For this page I experimented with my alcohol inks on Tim Holtz tissue tape, then applied some Smooch spritz for the background, clipped a vintage bird image from Cosmo Cricket paper, and finished the page off with my spritzed lyrics, a white gel pen, and white Staz-On ink. So, don’t let this prompt scare you…you can do this without having to drop the “F-bomb!” (Unless you want to, then I say, fuckin’ GO FOR IT!)
How fun is this song??? I took some of the lyrics from it and did a page on me and the hubs and how I still love him. I think I was still having fun with the speech bubbles from the April 15th prompt as well as I used them again on this! haha
Woo HOO I FINALLY got one in before the prompt went up! LOL
I used both title prompts & no journaling along with some Martha Stewart paint pens & highlighters. I wanted that graphic 60’s poster vibe.
Flipping through a magazine, I came across this painting by the artist Hundertwasser. (His work is so inspirational for art journalers! If you don’t know this painter, google him!!!) My fingers began to itch, so I painted/draw a head like that on an old dictionary page. I cut out the drawing and glued it onto my page. The photo of the ‘fuck you’ lady is from a magazine too. Do you remember a few years back, owls were really ‘hot’ among scrappers?! I had this piece of paper left (don’t know the branch…) and cut a few out. Doodling and handwriting with markers and a white sharpie. The dots are made with a pearl pen (‘puffy paint’ kinda stuff)
The title (‘Look at me now’) threw me back in time… it made me think of the time when I was in art school and struggling to find my own style and place in this world… it seems I found my way & destiny now!
ALSO!! Don’t forget about the BLOG HOP!!
