Journaling Music 3: Show Tune

I'm experimenting with a new series of art journaling inspired by my favorite music! This is my third layout and features art inspired by "This Is Me" from The Greatest Showman.  

The music/lyrics for this incredible show was written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. "This Is Me" performed by Keala Settle and the Ensemble was released in 2017 and won a Golden Globe for Best Original Song!  

My right page features a broken hearted, bruised, scarred Oddella Heart from Polkadoodles. She, along with Cuts and paper from Polkadoodles, works for me in this layout!

If you are curious about my other layouts, you can find the blogposts HERE and 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!  ;)
