Hi all :D I hope you're having a great day or night as the case may be. I did this in spare time at work. It's nothing overly special and I believe it could be done much better (add actual visual elements to the hearts and maybe even depict horrible twists of fate that could happen if they go the wrong way), but considering I was at work, this is what I came up with between breaks and lunch and I'm happy, lol. I hope you find it to be interesting, maybe even hopeful... This is what originally drew me to TheBrightsides' image "Romantic Poetry" (I needed a center for my maze) :) I wanted to call this 'loverinth" but a band has already taken that name. Okay, at this point I'm sort of rambling (I'm quite tired so I apologize) and should probably let ya go. Take care and I hope you're enjoying our new awesome home! Cheers!
PS - I had thought of this image (or a similar one) after a dream the other night, so I'm adding it to Anyorkable's Dream collab. Y'all should take a look and consider submitting something too :P Peace!
I just love the contrast of the different colors like in this case the amazing purple of the flowers with the blue of the sky at the background.
I’m craving words.
Words looped around and dotted and crossed. Words flowing and ceasing and rhyming and completing. Words that have no mea...
I'm sitting in a bathtub surrounded by my hopes and dreams.

ok - so now that the game really has started, i'm going to add my tiny story here as my "first" move:
she slipped away to the shadows, avoiding the light.
"safe," she thought, letting out a sigh of relief. "there was no one who saw."
but the leaves were watching.
"I was going to go to Neverland... but I accidentally went left to the realm of D'nalreven where all men and women find themselves."
This remix combined kouralilly's text record and Gaby's image. It advances kouralilly.
I know it's nothing fancy, but I had an idea and ran with it. Hope it's acceptable! (And it's 1am in here, so the game has already started for me haha)
Guys, I am sorry I am a little late but I've been working a lot today, I hope you like it and that this is Ok!
I used kouralilly's record, my record, sabine's record and psalmist record! :o)
Oh, this is such a bad REmix, but I'm running out of time and I do think this little story would do well for a tiny film. My apologies and I'll do better next time with my actual recording equipment.
So, since Gaby had incorporated a heart in her remix of mine and I'd had it in my original, I decided to make the main character a heart. I added jesterlady's voice over to this and based it off of barush's story. And I thought it could use some music, so I borrowed from claire for that :D Hopefully it came out okay. Cheers!
This couns as a move for barush this round.
Psalmist, this is the version of "the flowers and the sky" that I did and used for my first move at the Game Collab! I hope it works for you and everyone! :)
this is to advance kouralilly.
Initially, my interpretation of her text was humorous, but I really liked Psalmist's more mysterious interpretation. So, I used the song he used and added a VO of kouralilly's text. I'm including the combination of the two (song with VO) as well as the VO separately (when listening to the VO, there's a long gap before the VO starts. That's because I kept it the way it was formatted with the song - use it any way you like... IF you care to use it :-)
The Elf was gazing into the skies
observing her fluttering butterflies
their crimson wings reflecting in her eyes
as she watched the morning sun rise
per kouralilly's request <3
I hate my voice. I'm hoping someone can do a better reading. It's a great text to do a VO to.
Um, my first attempt at stop motion ever. Hope it's okay I used Vicky's song :)
(And it's supposed to advance Psalmist, if I'm getting it right lol)
So, I've had something like this in mind since first seeing sabine's "Witnesses" (Remix) :D It had looked very different in my mind before, lol. But after playing around with Gaby's remix, this is what I ended up with :)
I call it a "treeoll" which is a combination of the words "tree" and "troll". I see it as a creature that lives in D'nalreven. I actually created several versions based off of the seasons. This one is the Winter treeoll :) Anyway, hope y'all like it!
Oh and for this one I think I'll move sabine forward since her Starter RECord inspired, lol. Cheers!
PS - Thank you Gaby for adding your original remix up!! I hope I put it to good use :)
as promised, I added Psalmist's text to kouralilly's. Decided to add my daughter into the mix as well.
i’m craving love.

I wasn’t ever going to grow up. I wasn’t ever going to be bogged down by responsibility. I wasn’t going to make the same mistakes my parents did.
So I went searchin...
This is just a tiny animation. It includes the elf from sabine's RECord, a butterfly done in a few different shades from F.M.Gore-Kelly, some scenery from saintmaker and (as its centerpiece) Gaby's flower :) There's sound or words for this one, it's just images. Hope it's okay that way and I hope you like it! Cheers!
This moves Gaby forward ;)
Obviously, I can't draw to save my life. But I was thinking that maybe somebody could make a more presentable version? :) This idea popped up in my head after reading jesterlady's awesome piece. And it's to advance kouralilly.
This is to advance Psalmist.
Wanted to add more "obstacles" but have a lot of other things to do tonight and tomorrow and wasn't sure when I'd be able to get back to this..
"When right was wrong for all she felt, the fae took what Fate left and Tinker fell..."
So, right after looking at kouralilly's "tink's revenge", I thought about a play on words with 'Tinker Bell' turning to 'Tinker Fell'. Hope you like my little remix and the words I put with it :)
This moves kouralilly forward a space.
Tiny story: "I'm sitting in a bathtub surrounded by my hopes and dreams.
I pull the plug and watch them all spiral down the drain.
Maybe next time, when I fill up my bathtub again, they'll come back recycled and fulfilled." --barush
***this is to advance barush. I can upload a zip file with the photoshop layers in case someone wants to animate it to go along with barush's text.
So, will they?
You know what they say.
Where there's will.
(But is it so?)
Look at what lies...
I really screwed up the winter side, but don't let's look at it. Maybe someone better than me at graphics can fix it.
This is to advance Gaby.
I also used Spring by Emily1412 in this but it won't let me REsource. http://www.hitrecord.org/records/81053
Ok, here it is, my last move for the Game Collab, now we just have to make the last collab together right?, it's been awesome and fun, fun, fun, even when I was lost almost all the time haha, thanks Psalmist for organizing this and thanks to Sabine, jest, Koura and barush for all the amazing records that you did and share with us! hugs!
PS: This is for advance Sabine, I think...hehehe
So here's my next remix for the collab game, to advance jesterlady :) I didn't use any music, because I really liked sabine's VO and didn't want it to be buried.
I have no idea where this VO came from. But I needed to upload something for my last move and I don't have a lot of time today.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up for my last two tracks and then comes the final collab!
This is for jesterlady, tried to give it an ominous spin :)
ok - this is an attempt to blend toegther all the amazingly creative works which have been produced by all playing the collab game so far...
ok - this is the corrected version with gabys name spelled properly!!
honestly, to save time i am just resourcing v.1 for this, as it has all the resources listed.
