Default June Challenge #4 - Poem & Lyrics Challenge


Hi everyone, welcome to another new challenge this month, the Poem & Lyrics Challenge. This challenge is about using a poem or song lyric to inspire you to create a layout.

This month I am using a song called Starry Starry Night by Don McLean. It was a popular song back in '70s and is about the celebrated artist Vincent van Gogh. I have included the entire song but don't worry, you don't need to use it all! Your challenge is use the song to inspire your page and use AT LEAST ONE WORD from the song in your MAIN TITLE for your layout. You can use more than one word if you wish, but part of it needs to be in the main title, as shown in my example page below.

"Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)" by Don McLean

Starry, starry night
Paint your palette blue and gray
Look out on a summer's day
With eyes that know the darkness in my soul

Shadows on the hills
Sketch the trees and the daffodils
Catch the breeze and the winter chills
In colors on the snowy linen land

Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

Starry, starry night
Flaming flowers that brightly blaze
Swirling clouds in violet haze
Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue

Colors changing hue
Morning fields of amber grain
Weathered faces lined in pain
Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand

Now I understand
What you tried to say to me
And how you suffered for your sanity
And how you tried to set them free

They would not listen, they did not know how
Perhaps they'll listen now

For they could not love you
But still your love was true
And when no hope was left in sight
On that starry, starry night

You took your life, as lovers often do
But I could've told you Vincent
This world was never meant for
One as beautiful as you


As well as the poignant lyrics, the song itself has a haunting melody to it and if you would like to listen to it, and see some of van Gogh's beautiful artistry then take a look at this youtube video ---> HERE


Here is my page:

Credits: Among the Stars kit by Key Lime Digi Designs at Oscraps

I took my inspiration from van Gogh's painting style itself. Using PSE14 I blended some papers together, then I moved the stars over onto my page. I duplicated the star layer, and on this layer I applied a Radial blur to give an impression of the stars revolving. I then duplicated the original star layer 3 times, rotating each layer, resizing and then moving to different locations so that the right hand corner was filled, then I highlighted each layer and merged them together. I then moved the radial blur beneath the merged star layer. I used the CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+E to blend all these layers together (this technique allows you to keep all the layers intact below the 'stamped' layer. In Topaz Impressions I then used a van Gogh preset on it. From there I played around with my text and added a couple of elements that were blended into the page.

There are plenty of ideas you could use for your inspiration, can't wait to see them!!

When I saw Key Lime Digi's Among the Stars, I knew I had to use my hubby's photo. This challenge was perfect!
