The lyrics to a song can draw you back in time. The tune may trigger memories at your mothers knee, falling in love, a first date, party or heartfelt feelings. Music speaks to our spirits and is easy to identify with. As such, the lyrics to music are ideal to use in scrapbook art that mark important moments, memories and themes. The lyrics of a song can add meaning and influence to the photos of life that you use in your scrapbooks.
You will need lyrics to the songs you wish to use (these can often be found by searching google), a hand written or printed copy of the lyrics, decorative paper, solid paper to mat photos and text, adhesive and other embellishments that help you build your scrapbook theme. Clear hobby rubber stamps are versatile and are great for assisting in your theme building ideas.
Begin by thinking of the people or events that are depicted in the photos you wish to use, or the feelings that you wish to convey on your page. You may wish to use the title of a song as your scrapbook page Topper or you can choose a fun one from among the 1500 FREE Toppers available at Clearly Rubber Stamping
Below is one idea of how a song can be used to create and build scrapbooking themes:
Baby Pages – Use a lullaby to enhance your theme. For example the words to Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are! Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky!
When the blazing sun is gone, When the nothing shines upon, Then you show your little light, Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Then the traveler in the dark, Thanks you for your tiny spark, He could not see which way to go, If you did not twinkle so.
In the dark blue sky you keep, And often through my curtains peep, For you never shut your eye, Till the sun is in the sky.
As your bright and tiny spark, Lights the traveler in the dark, Though I know not what you are, Twinkle, twinkle,little star
This lullaby can easily depict the light and joy a baby brings into your life. It is easily decorated by stamping stars and adding glitter or jewels that enhance the delightful photos of a sweet baby and their joyful first smiles.
The lyrics to songs can also be altered if you wish.
There is music about everything. May your scrapbook pages sing sweetly of the memories you cherish, captured in your scrapbooking hobby.
