Journal 52, Week 51: Sing a Song

This week over at Journal 52, Chelle's 51st prompt is Sing a Song.  After I finish my journal page this week and link up at Chelle's, I'm off to a friend's for a party we are co-hosting.  She lives in the country and has a huge, sprawling home.  We are hosting an Ugly Sweater Party, so I need to find an ugly sweater before I leave.

But for now, let's sing a song.  I went old school.  Although I didn't really get into Pink Floyd until the 1990s, I fell in love with the harmony, the rythms, and the overall sound.  I'm not sure I ever really listened to the words of the songs, but I fell in love with their "voice."

I used two songs they were famous for, "The Wall, Part II" and "Wish You Were Here."


If you love Pink Floyd as I do, you'll be singing along with these two songs for days to come.  I've tried to listen to Christmas music and that still didn't help.  I am STILL singing these two songs!

I tried to create a few "faux" bricks.  I wish I had the embossing folder that makes bricks, but I don't, so I just tried to create my own with brick colored pigment ink.  Sadly, I smeared the ink when I assembled the vintage sheet music to my used file folder.

Sing these songs.  I dare you to get them out of your head, now.

Oh Elizabeth... I was a 16 years old high school girl and we loved those songs so much!
Great idea with the faux bricks!

I have been so remiss in visiting you dear friend, hope to be forgiven! Thank you so much for the lovely card and my lovely hanging that I got in the post earlier in the week. I will have to make you something in the New Year and send it out as the kitchen reno overtook all my crafting time.
The ugly sweater party sounds like a fun event, hope you had a great time and wishing you and Bleubeard a lovely festive season and happy new year for 2015!! hugs from Annette, Pandy and Tom-Tom

OK... I came on to comment on your lovely sheet music artwork and the choice of song... and totally forgot to do both! LOL Lovely journal page, there is something about sheet music that always looks so wonderful when used in art.

I like the bricks. It's a fun idea to add them to the sheet music.

I don't understand that whole "ugly" sweater thing. Most of those sweaters look cute to me lol

Fab page, E! They're old songs so need old bricks which are a bit smudged looking anyways, so yours fit right in. Have a wonderful time at the Ugly Sweater party. Does Bleubeard have an ugly sweater to wear? T is out on the porch doing 'dust-mop' doggie patrol. She's so funny she hisses at them from the balcony. :) :) Merry Christmas!

Fun page - I love your bricks. I remember this song from my high school days but it was never really my thing, so it probably won't get stuck in my head (but you never know!). I was listening to The Police, The B52s and The Specials that year (and still wearing a hole in Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Key of Life, released three years prior). thanks for the memories!

Yes, now I have those songs played over and over in my head! Like you it was the beat, the sound, but maybe not so much attention to the words.

Great take away on the song lyrics to form your brick page. xox

Love this! Love the song but wouldn't say I was a Pink Floyd fan - its' just one of those ear worm songs that you can't stop singing once you you've heard (or in this case read!) Love your bricks…….la, la, laa, la la la - see it's got to me!!! lol! Hugs, Chrisx
