I landed on Good King Wenceslas as the song I wanted to “nail art” because I figured not many other people would be tackling it. 🙂
It wasn’t until I looked at the other nail art today that I realized that others weren’t looking at the challenge the same way I was — as an illustration idea like frame-by-frame –, but I decided to go ahead anyway – I was too curious about how it would work!
To illustrate Good King Wenceslas, with the King and Page together was my very original idea, but then I decided to do it as prompt cards. What was the next verse? Hmmm… oh! Something about mountains!
It’s not very photogenic, but I had so much fun doing this and the idea that people might look at my nails and then break out into song is intriguing. 😛
And of course I added the borders. 🙂 I hoped it would transport the brain back to Wenceslas’s time. 😀
So there is the crown (for Wenceslas):
The moon and fire (gath’ring winter fuel)…
The mountain where the peasant lives under….
The miraculous Kingly footprints…
And the cross is a more abstract illustration of the last verse — illustrating “Christian men”, mainly.
Secondly, I had the other hand, and I considered if I wanted to do another song.
And I did!
I did Silver Bells on this hand:
First is the sidewalks dressed in holiday style…
Then meeting smile after (rainbow-colored) smile…
Then silv-er bellls…..
Then the stoplights that even blink red and green…
And Santa, who’s big scene it is.
Sorry, I got to cut this post short, but I will see you soon!
Oh! Sorry, I forgot to put this on before — check out the other entries! 😀
What is one of your favorite Christmas songs? Do you have any memories associated with it?
BT and I love to belt out the Looney Tunes Good King Wenceslas – the only version I knew (and loved) for years. 😀
