The prompt this time is from MARIT!! I loved the ideas and the “obscure” song she chose to stretch us with!!
THE PROMPT: Eye opener
THE SONG: Why are we sleeping – Soft Machine/Kevin Ayers(They don’t have the song/video on Project Playlist – it’s/I’m obscure like that – but there are two video’s on youtube.)
Written Lyrics HERE
PRODUCT/TECHNIQUE: Eyes (photo’s, stamps, drawing… whatever)
My beloved is a great fan of Soft Machine. I am not so much – not of the actual music anyway – but this band have great song lyrics and when I had to make up a prompt I thought of this song right away. The lyrics from this song can lead to a fun art journal page but can also take you into deeper thoughts about life and the world we live in. The prompt ‘eye opener’ and the technique gives you enough freedom to play with it any way you like. I choose to make a ‘fun page’ but I might as well do a ‘raw journaling’ page later on. There are so many dimensions and directions to take this prompt… show us where it leads YOU!!
Sometimes… I feel like the public face is a mask I am stuck behind…
I went with some of the lyrics in this song and substituted wine for beer! haha I had fun with this page.
