Todays theme for the Scraps to Treasures Team is to use a song to create something with our scraps. The song Robin chose is called 'Let It Go' from the Disney movie "Frozen".

After reviewing the lyrics I decided that I would be making a mixed media art journal page.

The Lyrics:

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight,
not a footprint to be seen.
A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I'm the queen.
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside.
Couldn't keep it in, Heaven knows I tried.
Don't let them in, don't let them see.
Be the good girl you always have to be.
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know.
Well, now they know!
Let it go, let it go!
Can't hold it back any more.
Let it go, let it go!
Turn away and slam the door.
I don't care what they're going to say.
Let the storm rage on.
The cold never bothered me anyway.
It's funny how some distance,
makes everything seem small.
And the fears that once controlled me, can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do,
to test the limits and break through.
No right, no wrong, no rules for me.
I'm free!
Let it go, let it go.
I am one with the wind and sky.
Let it go, let it go.
You'll never see me cry.
Here I'll stand, and here I'll stay.
Let the storm rage on.
My power flurries through the air into the ground.
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I'm never going back; the past is in the past!
Let it go, let it go.
And I'll rise like the break of dawn.
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand, in the light of day.
Let the storm rage on!
The cold never bothered me anyway...

I gessoed my page and then used several shades of blue spray inks and paints for my background.  I decided to use the title, 'Let It Go', and the line 'the past is in the past' .  I selected white and silver sticker letters to add that to the lower part of my page.

I selected a pile of red scraps-

and I got out my Sizzix Ransom Alphabars.

From the scraps I cut letters for feelings that belonged in the past.


I used both the letters and the negatives to form the words which I adhered randomly to the top portion of the page.

I covered the whole page with Matte ModPodge.

And here it is-

Be sure to go over to the Scraps to Treasure team page and see what the rest of the team has created from this musical inspiration.
