I chose the song Norwegian Wood as when I was little, the Beatles were constantly played in my house as my big sister loved them - and this song (and the Rubber Soul album as a whole) was my favourite
I never realised though until I really read the lyrics in preparation for this page that it was about a jilted arsonist! :D
But instead of portraying our John burning the poor girl's furniture, I decided to illustrate the line about sleeping in the bath tub...
Not sure it quite worked, ah well, at least the colours are right....ish
Then I blocked out the shape for bathtime Lennon with white paint pen, and started to colour him in:
I liked the way the background showed through his towel so I made sure to keep a bit of that in the final thing.
Lots of shading with oil pastels and a Stabilo All pencil later, and he was done.
All that was left to do was type up the relevant bit of the song lyrics:
So that's it for my own page, quite plain, so lots of scope for the other participants to fiddle with it as it does the rest of its rounds :D (this is a collaborative circle journal)
And talking of fiddling:
I added some shadow stamping to echo the lovely pressed flower on Pam's page
And some light colour to the gorgeous sketched girl on Sherry's page
Meanwhile Donna's amazing Parisian page was the perfect home for my Paris washi tape (up top)
and I finished up by giving Virginia's page a blush of colour round the edges
As ever, this has been a lot of fun!
Sian's book next month, and I'm going to give a bit of an advanced warning, my page might have a few swear words on it!
