The Craft Barn: Q & L Challenge

A new challenge at the Craft Barn. The challenge this time is to use the words JOURNEY and/or FRIENDSHIP in a quote or lyric.
I went for journey and a song of another favourite singer of mine: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds. The song is called "Into my arms"

And I believe in Love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candles burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

  I've started by covering the whole background with black Gesso Then I've made 3 tags where I stamped the stars and added the border. I've stamped three hearts on red cardboard and added the stamped heads and the lover. On the black background I've drawn a white border and wrote the lyrics as well. Arranged the three tags and glued them on. 

The stamps I've used are from Craft Stamper mag., Paper Artsy and Crafty Individuals.
Another fun project. 

Thanks for all the nice comments on my Moon page. Very much appreciated.
Thanks for looking :)


  1. Three lovely tags on your page, lyrics are lovely, like how you have written them on your dark background. Great page:-) xxx

  2. A striking page in red, black & white.

  3. A very strong page with that colour palette. Off to find that song now!

  4. Great lyrics and great art to go with it. Love your white writing on the background.

  5. black, white and red, a perfect match.

  6. Your page looks like Christmas meet Valentine's day, I quite like the bold colour scheme and the chalkboard effect of the black gesso.

  7. You have BEAUTIFUL handwriting. I was impressed that you had written that, rather than stamping the words on the page. And those tags compliment the black and white color scheme and set them apart, making them seem to pop off the page. This is a beautiful entry.

  8. Fabulous. I love the pallette and that song is beautiful, a great marriage of components :o))

  9. Great idea! Perfect cool color palette and lovely stamps!

  10. Wow, just amazing! A very clever and beautiful piece!

  11. Love the layout of this place. You have proved less is more colour wise.

  12. Great page! I love your tags and lyrics and black, red and white is always very striking together! xx

  13. A very dramatic page. Love it!
