Let me just clarify that I didn’t make 10 pages in 10 minutes although that sounds like a future challenge! What I did though is I loved this challenge.
It was to listen to one minute each of ten songs which you have chosen (or you could listen to random songs) and note down ideas and lyrics for a future art journal page.
I used index cards for each song.
As a non journaling art journaler, I don’t usually include quotes or lyrics in my pages, so I decided to embrace this challenge and listen for some lyrics to use from each song. This is surprisingly difficult when you only have one minute of a song to draw from. So I have to admit that I cheated on a couple and had to go back and make sure I had got the lyrics correct, I mean if I am going to quote someone, I had better get the words in the right order!
Some of the songs I could barely make out some of the lyrics (ha! I sound like my Dad). George Ezra I am looking at you, I swear one of the lyrics from ‘Budapest’ includes the mysterious line – ‘bag of cheese’.
I set my timer, hit play, scribbled, noted and listened as each song came and went.

Then I was totally ready to fill some pages, in fact I was ready for a new book. So I made one. I used regular paper, mixed media paper, grey tone and some music sheets to make a twenty page book which I intend to fill with this exercise and another one using another ten songs.
So far I have finished five pages which started out as the above pictures. I can’t wait to do the second five! Below are the first five finished pages.
