Inspired by a Song

 Hi everyone. It's time once again for another challenge at Try It On Tuesday.

Thanks to those of you who shared art for our Rainbow challenge.

This time we ask you to create some art from an inspiring song. You can post any type of art, and you have the next 2 weeks to share that art with us.


The song for my piece was "Light My Fire" by the Doors. 

The background was made with multiple colors of spray inks and paints.  I then added some printed tissue paper. I stamped lots of hearts and circles in the 2 corners to make a sort of frame for my main piece.
I recycled the main centerpiece heart with it's flames from an old journal page. I did add the quote and the couple sitting on the heart. I also added the butterflies and the the single rose.

I am also linking this piece up to Eileen's Inspired By challenge at Art Journal Journey. Chris from Pear Shaped Crafting and I are hosting this month in Eileen's memory.

Don't forget to check out all the design team's inspiration. There's some great pieces.
I look forward to seeing your song inspired art.
Thanks for visiting.

An amazing song and art that it inspired! Your piece is a fitting tribute to the group, especially Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek. I’m very sad how many of the talented musicians I loved were taken at such a young age. The music they could have continued to create shall never be. Sad.
