Altered Junk Challenge!

We are starting something new!  On our partner's blog, Twisted Scrapper, we are hosting a challenge for Altered Junk  - this info was taken on her blog but PLEASE go to her blog for the challenge download and to participate.

Altered Junk Challenge #1 and FREEBIE

We thought we would start providing you with some challenges here on the blog. To provide you with some inspirations. Songs really can be very inspiring for art journalers. Inger personally bases a lot of her own pages on songs or feelings inspired by songs. Considering her own feelings she thinks most challenges here will be song challenges.
This does not mean you have to use the lyrics on your pages. Listen to the music, read the lyrics. What does that bring out. A feeling? A visions? Whatever it is, journal about it. Or if it does nothing for you at all, use the lyrics, or maybe just make some art inspired by some of the words in the song. Whatever it is, it brings out in you! In art journaling, nothing is wrong. YOU are the artist. YOU decide what's on YOUR canvas!

SEE BELOW FOR CHALLENGE RULES

For this challenge Inger chose the song Rise by the McClain Sisters

Lyrics:

I used to be afraid of giving up
The road is just too tough
Out here on my own
My path was so alone

But now I see clearly
Everything within me
Is reaching up to the sky
I can see the world with open eyes

You can't let it pass you
Just take hold and grasp it
Now's the time to take a chance
With the strength of a thousand men
Climbing to my feet again

So dry those tears from your eyes
And everything will be alright
You know the rainbow's just in sight
Dust your wings off as you rise
If your heart feels overwhelmed
Just know you're never by yourself
Put your hand in mine, put your head up high
And together we'll rise

Rise and lift your head up to the sky
And find yourself asking why?
Never seem out of life
With the hardships of life

But faith is where my heart is
That energy replaces my doubts
When my trials get the best of me
I'm marching forth towards my destiny

You can't let it pass you
Just take hold and grasp it
Now's the time to take a chance
With the strength of a thousand men
Climbing to my feet again

So dry those tears from your eyes
And everything will be alright
You know the rainbow's just in sight
Dust your wings off as you rise
If your heart feels overwhelmed
Just know you're never by yourself
Put your hand in mine, put your head up high
And together we'll rise

Together we can do anything
We'll rise
We can make it through anything
We'll rise
Together we can do anything
We'll rise, we'll rise, we'll rise

You can try to hurt me
Doubt me and desert me
I'll feel the will of kings
With my mind I'll plant a seed

And you know a tree will grow
And take me in
To safety's arms
I will descend

So dry those tears from your eyes
And everything will be alright
You know the rainbow's just in sight
Dust your wings off as you rise
If your heart feels overwhelmed
Just know you're never by yourself
Put your hand in mine, put your head up high
And together we'll rise

Together we can do anything
We'll rise
We can make it through anything
We'll rise
Together we can do anything
We'll rise, we'll rise, we'll rise

Together we can do anything
We'll rise
We can make it through anything
We'll rise
Together we can do anything
We'll rise, we'll rise, we'll rise
