Somebody To Love

The latest Song Title Challenge fro The Craft Barn is 'Somebody to Love' by Queen.
My obvious choice was Oscar my Löwchen who is very cute and cuddly. I was told by my daughter I should have chosen my children! - but I knew I had this photo which was taken on the first day of our school term in February. He was totally not impressed that the Summer holidays were over and was looking very dejected! :(

This page was created in a re-purposed text book so the text was already int he background. After printing and trimming the photo, I used some of the scraps to add more texture and interest to the background. Then I decided to write one of the verses of the some in across the page:

I work hard every day of my life
I work till I ache in my bones
At the end of the day
I take home my hard earned pay all on my own
I get down on my knees
And I start to pray
Till the tears run down from my eyes
Lord somebody, ooh somebody
Please can anybody find me somebody to love?

As soon as I had written it I realised that the pen was probably not permanent and I wanted to ass some glaze, but then thought I would embrace that and let the pen add the colour to the glaze. Pretty happy with how that worked.
Next some zigzag stamping in cobalt blue and black around the edge. The song title was stamped on tissue and added to the photo with ´Queen´ and the crown stamped on the page.


  1. Oh my! This is such a powerful page - really tugs at the heart strings. Thank you so much for joining the Craft Barn Song Challenge xx

    1. Thanks Mickie - Happy about the results and winning the challenge :)

  2. I love the smudged writing, it gives the impression that Oscar has shed a few tears for being left on his own. A great page and congratulations on winning the challenge. Enjoy your prize.
