Journaling Music 2: What is a Scarecrow's Dream?

I'm experimenting with a new series of art journaling inspired by my favorite music in my newest Homemade Journal! This is my second layout and features art inspired by an incredible song by one of my favorite lyricists/songwriters...Dan Fogelberg!  What an amazing guy he was!

The song that inspired my layout is "Scarecrow's Dream" from the album Nether Lands released in the late '70's.

The sentiment on the left hand page of the layout is part of the lyrics written by Dan Fogelberg.

My right page features a lovely image from Limited Runs called Scarecrow Girl, Cricut Cuts, and paper designed in Cricut Design Space!

If you are curious about my first layout, you can find the blogpost HERE.

Check out the video below for ideas and info about how this layout was created.  You won't hear the song there, due to copyright and such, but you can listen to the above links!  ;)

Curious about this layout:  how it was made, the ideas or symbols in it, or other?  Join me at the video below.  

Are you wondering how to get more out of your Cricut experience and design background pages like what you see above?  Check out the video below for all the details!
