Music Monday - Jar of Hearts

Welcome back to another edition of Music Monday! This week I share a collage piece featuring a very popular song right now. I am a huge fan of So You Think You Can Dance. Along with many other people, I fell in love with Christina Perri's song Jar of Hearts when it was featured on the show. The lyrics and music were so haunting, and so resonated with me in a way I cannot describe. When I finished this piece last night (actually this morning at 1am), I showed it to my husband and he said it was disturbing. I said that was exactly what I was going for! So here are the lyrics, and today's collage:

So who do you think you are?
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From all the ice inside your soul
So who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

Check out Christina's website and watch the amazing video they made for the song - it is beautiful!

Happy Monday!



  1. I don't know how you managed to get the heart in the jar (many possibilities run through my mind right now... 'milky paper' over the image... aaah... such inspiration this piece gives me!)
    Anyway, I wanted to say I love your page!!! Thanks for sharing it via A Year in the Life of an Art Journal!

  2. This is perfection. I love the anatomical hearts!! Really cool piece!! Thanks so much for sharing with us at A Year in the Life of an Art Journal!!
