My poor blog, forgive me for neglecting you. I’ve not been feeling great the last few weeks, worn out from the constant pain in my back, along with assorted other things. I tried writing a blog post a few times, but gave up as my brain seemed incapable of functioning. Anyway, on to today’s project.
I made this canvas a few weeks ago. I intended taking part in Hels‘ Sunday Stamper challenge at the time, which was ‘Diamonds’, but that didn’t happen. Then I thought I would enter it in last week’s Simon Says Stamp challenge, which was ‘Anything’ & that didn’t happen. So, here it is.

When Hels gives a theme, she always chooses a song to go along with it & she chose ‘Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds’. Naturally, I couldn’t resist. I’ve loved The Beatles’ music for as long as I can remember & LSD is so full of imagery, you really can’t go wrong. I wanted to include a number of images from the song & I wanted to go quite big, so I chose a 20x20cm canvas instead of a card to work on.

So there it is. I think it has a childlike quality, which I like, as “Lucy…..” is probably one of the first songs I learnt as a child. What do you think?
Thank you for visiting, have a great weekend. Until then,
Love & light
