My Anthem!

So I am hosting the
Music Inspires Creativity challenge  at Scraps Of Darkness

Music is everywhere around us....we listen to our favorite bands, the themes of our shows, the background of the movie we are watching, commercials and nature - the wind in the willows, the birds singing, music is everywhere. In my house it is a big thing. There is always music on somewhere in the house. Our oldest plays the guitar but both boys are eclectic in their music preferences and it is always on. They will be listening to Metallica, then Johhny Cash then Maroon 5. It is pretty cool. So, when I was thinking about challenges I could do, music seemed a natural choice. So for your first challenge I want you to create a paper layout using any products and materials that represent YOUR ANTHEM....
according to;
A rousing or uplifting song identified with a particular group, body, or cause:
ie - the song became the anthem for hippie activists
So I want you to figure out what your anthem is...a song that you identify with, a song that helps define you, a song that when you listen to it either makes you say 'hey thats me' or 'I want that to be me' and create your layout using that song as inspiration.

the rules:
*you have until March 31st to upload your layout into the appropriate folder.
*can not be used with Lisa's mixed media challenge
*when you upload your project please let us know which song and why it is your anthem
*I will do a random draw for the winner of a wonderful prize donated by Melinda

and I created my example!

I used lots of Scraps Of Darkness previous kit goodies and some Leaky Shed Studio chipboard

I made some of the flowers, others are from my stash and some I sprayed with mist.
I applied some gesso

I love the weight of the Leaky Shed Studio Chipboard because it takes well to being altered.

I inked, then I misted them.  I used some glossy accents to adhere diamond dust, then sprayed some more and of course gesso!

The journaling is under the photo and it reads:

'When I hear the song 'Hand in my Pocket' by Alanis Morissette I can't help but sing along!
I really feel like this is my 'anthem' because I really identify with it!
There are two side to the songstress, there is something bad but something good.  She sees the bright side and even though she doesn't have the answer she's ok.  Just like me.  I don't have the answers, I don't know whats going to happen in the future, I know life is not all unicorns & rainbows and its ok to not be, 'cause everything's just fine, fine fine'
