"Lucy In The Sky………."

Published March 24, 2012 by isisimaginings
 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
