Lyrics

This is the first time i have ever put some serious time into a design on photoshop. I'm not sure if it turned out how i was envisioning, but i like it.

 

Each letter of the word "Lyrics" is a different song:

L: Forever and Always by Bullet for my Valentine

Y:Paint it Black by The Rolling Stones

R: Whispers in the Dark by Skillet

I: Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

C: The Freshman by Verve Pipe

S: Plug in Baby by Muse

 

The lyrics for each of these songs are contained in each corresponding letter, and the name of the song is in red.

 

For the scattered words around the large "Lyrics" i used random letters, and quotes from Jimi Hendrix and threw them everywhere, with music notes thrown in. My favorite quote i used from him:

"I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to. "

 

The record player is just a stock image, and the crest below it is just a brush design.

 

The sheet music on the bottom is actually from Stairway to Heaven by Led Zepplin, but i can't read sheet music so i have no way of knowing if that is true.

 

I tried not to go overboard on the distressed look of the poster, but this was a really fun design and i may have gone a little crazy,

 

For the record, i had to type out every single word of the lyrics as separate layers, meaning i couldn't just copy and paste the entire lyrics. It. Took. Forever.

 

I really hope you like it, and give me some criticism, i could certainly use it. VIEW IT IN THE ORIGINAL SIZE PLEASE!
