Listen to what the man said…

When Paul McCartney and his wife Linda formed Wings in 1971, I wasn’t too impressed, but there are a couple of songs that I have always liked. One of them is “Listen to what the man said…” and the other is “Band on the Run”.

“Wings” is the Take a Word challenge this week, and this one’s also for Penny at Songs in my HeART! Peace out, man!

This page is the first one in my fabric-covered art journal that I made during Julie Prichard’s Art Journalling Supernova class. I love this journal and the Khadi papers are so roughly textured. They absorb colour and ink extremely well!

My BBFF, Barbara Hagerty, wrote a really interesting post recently – all about the joy of journalling, and opening your eyes. If you are an art journalist/journaller, you might just find it provocative! It’s certainly food for thought… 😉

Meantime, I am looking forward to starting Summer Camp with Marit tomorrow… yay!!!!! 🙂

  1. Absolutely beautiful

    Have fun at the summer camp – I might join you in a few weeks

  2. What a great take on the theme- the band “Wings” had some hits and you mentioned two that did soar in the charts. Great piece Rosie!

  3. Very cool. What a fantastic take on the word wings. 🙂

  4. Awesome page – you certainly had a ‘song in your heart’ when you created it! Have fun at camp! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  5. You rocked this one! *giggle* Seriously I love the little round flowers, the distressing and the dots…ok the whole thing!

  6. I love this Rosie! I’ve never been a fan of the new Paul. Loved the original, pre-motorcycle accident (fall of 1966) Paul, though…..XOXO

  7. Rosie – I love you unique take on this theme. I agree with you wholeheartedly on the subject of Paul and Linda McCartney’s wings. I think a lot of people were prepared to hate them because they weren’t the Beatles but they did come up with some fine songs. Beautiful collage. You have put a lot of work into it and it’s worth every minute. Cheers, Marie.
