This week has really flown by... I've completely loved sharing lOvE songs with you! What a blast! Are you ready for the final song???
Up Where We Belong- This song was created for the Movie, An Office and a Gentleman in 1982...Performed by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes. (here is the clip from You Tube). I saw the edited T.V. version later when I was in High Schoo and... Um... I LOVED this movie... Richard Gere... um... well he sort of took my breath away in it... the story was powerful and insightful and this song was the cherry on top for me! I will always remember him walking into the factory and sweeping her off her feet while everyone clapped! So romantic! I remember dancing to this at the very first dance I attended.
When thinking of this song I knew I needed an image that could could signify love being lifted up.. a heart shaped balloon quickly came to mind! I'm proud of the final balloon image... it's harder than it looks to create a rounded, flowing image that appears light and "float-able"! LOL! I also knew I wanted a slight change in the sentiment by adding an "s" to the word "lift" (as is in the lyrics) I felt this worked better for a paper-crafting sentiment. (Remember, this set is based on the songs, not directly quoting them all) Together the imagery is really sweet!
I used Copic Markersto color in and pop out the balloons... I love the option to color or have an image to fill in... again... more bang for the buck. (maybe POP is a better word for this card though! LOL!) Here is a card using the solid filled in image!
You can also use the sentiment as the balloon string for a little creative twist!
I hope you've enjoyed this weeks countdown! I've loved hearing your feedback .... thanks so much for sharing your excitement with me! I'm looking forward to seeing your creations! I am hoping to post a best of the best post after the release on the 15th with all the DT member samples together... it's a breathtaking sight!
