I was driving in my car yesterday, a song came on the radio, and I was instantly transported to the summer of 1991. Isn’t it funny how music seeps into our memories and the mere sound of it has the power to immediately take our minds to another point in our lives? It’s crazy to think the spontaneous decision of the songs we listen to today will forever connect our memories with music.
So what’s on your summer’s playlist? Is there a song that sticks out as your favorite or makes you think of something (or someone) you love? Snag the song title to use as inspiration for your next layout! For this page, I used the title from the song “This is Home” by Switchfoot, and pulled a line from the lyrics to incorporate into my journaling.
Song lyrics and titles make the perfect creative jump starts for a quick and easy page. But don’t stop there! Turn to album and cd covers for endless DESIGN inspiration. For the above layout, I was inspired by this music cover which placed a photo into each letter of the cover title. A simple technique like this done on a large scale makes a big impact!
