I can hardly believe that I've now completed 7 of the 10
pages for this circle journal - Desert Island Discs.
This page is for Nigel.
As I was the seventh person to get his journal
I only had the choice of 3 songs - gulp!
As you can see from the photo above I chose
'The Lark Ascending' by Vaughan Williams.
Beautiful music, but no lyrics to work with - yikes!
Luckily though, Nigel had supplied a little bit about
why he'd chosen his songs so with that in mind
I got to work.
For the cover (above), I kept it simple and tried to create
a stormy sky scene with - guess what -
a single lark ascending from the clouds!
I based the inside on Nigel's story.
This is meant to represent an abandoned airfield
with lots of wild flowers.
I used Pan Pastels and rubber stamps and although
it looks more like a cultivated field, I am pleased
with how it turned out in the end.
Seven down, three to go - even less song choices to come -
lucky I like a challenge!
Thanks for looking :)
