Lucy!

I do hope you are wide awake or this may be a shock!
My page for Art Journal Journey's theme, Hazel's brilliant choice, 'If Music Be The Food Of Love', and also for the theme at Moo Mania and More where the theme is Hearts I have a very bright page to represent the Beatles classic - 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds' very controversial in 1967.
I started by colouring blocks of different colours using my Inktense pencils and a water brush, then added other colours to give some depth. I then doodled using Stabilo fineliners and some Metallic Neocolours. I also used a white uniball Signo pen and a randomly stamped music background stamp.
This was all done while watching TV last night. We had spent most of the day at our Brother-in-Law's funeral and wake and I just felt the bright colours would lift my mood!

I am also linking to Kim Dellow's 'Show Your Face'.
Here is my Lucy with her kaleidoscope eyes.


Thanks for looking, Chris

I am sorry about your Brother-in-law's passing. As artists, we are blessed to be able to use our own art as therapy during times like that. I love the colors and the interesting detailing in your composition. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier. Blessings.

I was so excited when I saw that you had linked up to Kim's blog because I've been meaning to visit for ages! I love your work and this colourful journal page is gorgeous, Chris! It's really in the spirit of Sergeant Pepper - I'm sure Peter Blake would approve! I'm so sorry to hear of your sad day. Thinking of you and sending you love. xx

Lucy in the Sky for sure, Chris! This is such a fun page! Now I won't be able to get that song out of my head! I saw Elton John last year and he did it so well. I want to thank you for all your sweet comments on my blog. It certainly lifted my days! Hugs!
