Craft Barn challenge. Peaceful and/or Grace


Today is the perfect day for crafting...rain, a bank holiday and no work. Plus a Husband to feed me tea and wine!

When having a look for lyrics I came across Human by The Killers. I think most people must know this song and have sung it a little sozzled at some do or other.

The part I have chosen is:

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Give my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could

And so long devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You've gotta let me go

I don't know how this page came about. It had to be melancholy as the song says good bye to everything. I used dylusions on the background and the colours puddled by the spine of the book to look like a tree trunk. So I added a tree with black marker and stamped leaves with black stayz on ink. Then it needed something going away and of course that had to be butterflies. I wrote the words with white gel pen adding little flourishes. It was still lacking so I added a simple silhouette figure playing a flute.

Hope you like.
