Here it comes!!

We have spent half a day at our middle son's house today waiting for workmen. We have to go back tomorrow as one of them didn't turn up but promises to be there at 8 o'clock tomorrow! Hey Ho!
As we knew by lunchtime that he wasn't coming, and the other guys had done their bit and left, we hied ourselves of for a bite to eat and a quick shop!
While we were waiting, with no electric on,(it's OK we had the gas fire on and stayed mainly in one room and had taken a flask with us!)I amused myself by playing in my journals.
The page had been started with that in mind,(using my favourite sun stamp and a Banksy image that I bought last Sunday), so I used colouring pencils and my Inktense pencils with a water brush to finish this page.
This is my latest entry for Art Journal Journey.
Hazel's theme this time is 'If music be the food of love', such a great theme for someone who is always singing something under her breath(and sometimes…like in the full volume!)

This song is one I'm sure you will remember from the Beatles..ok..I was teenager in the 60's…the best time …in my opinion to be a teenager!
Here comes the Sun was released in 1969 by which time I was married to my first husband.
Ten years later our eldest son was born and this was one of the songs I would sing to him while I changed his nappy(diaper if you are in the USA)and he would stop wriggling … probably scared to move because of my awful singing!!

Uh! Oh! I'm rambling again…

Thanks for looking, Chrisx

Lol! I am sure that my singing is much more painful to hear than yours!! Hihi!!
This page is absolutely gorgeous Chris!
I do like the song as well even I was born 1963 -- it's a evergreen --isn't it?
Thank you so much for your latest entry to Art Journal Journey! I wish a happy weekend to you Yvonne!
