Good Morning Stampers,
Thank you for joining in with the last challenge - sorry I have not been about much to visit you - had one of those weeks and I have now got the mother of all pain in my right arm as well as my back :O(( I think I have managed to get a nerve trapped in my shoulder and elbow, which has made my arm a bit useless, it is taking me ages to type this (more than normal LOL) and I took about an hour just to make my little contribution for this week. Woe is me!! *one, two, three....awwwww!!! :O))
The theme this week is carrying on with the colour themes from previous weeks - only this week it is a little different as we have two colours to incorporate into the design.
I absolutely love the song Golden Brown by The Stranglers and what better way to use the words than interpret them into some artwork!
I made another butterfly for the Butterfly Project (see last weeks Sunday Stamper post for more details) and just used Distress Inks, Glimmer Mist and Acrylic Paint along with a loverly Agapanthus Head stamp from Stampendous.
As usual, please pop a note here when you have made your piece of art and add a link to the place where you are showing yours.
I am going off to sit on the sofa and feel sorry for myself now but will be back later to see what you have done :O)) Also, I will catch up and visit all of you from last week....hope that the meds will kick in and I will be able to do this later.....in the meantime......
Thanks for looking and have fun.
I have seen a few comments here and on other peeps Blogs about the song Golden Brown and the fact that this is actually a song about the drug Heroin. I wish it to be know that I am sorry if any of you were offended by my song choice this week, however, I wasn't aware of what it represented, I don't condone the use of drugs and I certainly don't think that there is any relevance to heroin in my little piece of artwork.
And seeing as Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is about LSD and that also is one of my fave songs, perhaps I really am just one of those people who love a good tune and don't really think too deeply about the words contained therein.
Golden Brown was released when I was a little girl , it reminds me of long hot summers and butterflies, that is all...again, sorry if any one has been offended by my choice, but I will just say that I set a challenge every week for people to join in with and get stamping. The title of the Sunday Stamper challenge is always a song title. Sometimes, I love the song I have chosen, other times I just use it because it fits in with the theme I have chosen. There are thousands of songs out there and I cannot really vet each one I chose just in case it has a hidden meaning.
Again, this is only a little weekly challenge and not anything that is mandatory. Stampers join in with the challenge at their own pleasure. I don't think that anyone would be encouraged to go out and try some heroin just because they have seen the words on my Blog - after all, if the song was that that scandalous, it would never have been released into the charts!
