Quotes & Lyrics - Horizon
So we are halfway through the year and onto challenge no13 of the Craft Barn's Quotes and Lyrics Challenge. This fortnight's words are 'Path' and 'Horizon'. I wanted to do a song lyric and I decided to choose horizon as my word. I considered The Carpenters 'We've Only Just Begun' (sharing horizons that are new to us) but in my mind it looked a bit similar to the 'Music' page I did a few weeks ago and also I have already used sun rays a couple of times. When this challenge started I knew there were certain singers/groups who I definitely wanted to include - Freddie Mercury and Queen were one and Abba was another.
This Abba song, Eagle, is not one of the most well-known ones but it has a chorus that may be familiar to you (be warned it's an earworm that I couldn't stop humming all night). OK so my birds are not eagles but they look rather mystical (like the song) and I see them swooping around in the sky at will. At the bottom of my page are houses and trees all firmly rooted to the ground and between the two is the horizon. Click on the pic for a clearer view of the quote which reads:
'They've seen places beyond my land and they've found new horizons.
They speak strangely but I understand'
The stamped birds are from a Fiskars set and the other bird is a Sizzix die. All have Wink of Stella glitter pen on them for a little sparkle.
