Quotes & Lyrics #10

Number 10 of the Craft Barn’s quote and lyrics challenge is here and I am tail end Charlie again! The words this fortnight are Passion and/or Music and I had found a quote I liked almost immediately that Craft Barn had posted the words, I’d also found two images and knew which song I wanted to use so why the delay??? I am helping our daughter on her craft stall on Sunday and she suggested I bring a few things along to sell so I’ve been busy stitching so now you know why the delay!

The song that came to mind for the Music prompt is probably one of the easiest however I decided to use part of one of the verses to go with the image I found rather than the title of the song – Thanks for the music by Abba

The lovely image came from a tattoo site but suited the lyrics well I felt.

When I look at the lovely pieces of art others have created for the Craft Barn challenge I wonder which came first – the image or the quote? For my second piece it was definitely the quote and then I went hunting for an image to go with it as, again, I didn’t have a suitable stamp.

Passionate dancers

Not the best piece I have created, still it is my rubbish! I still haven’t got the hang of aligning mats straight nor is cutting straight my forte – hey ho! I wanted to keep this piece as clutter free as possible so that the silhouetted dancers stood out and added a touch of red for passion!
