Nowhere Man, Please Listen
Another fortnight and another set of words for The Craft Barn's Quotes and Lyrics Challenge - this time HUG and/or NOWHERE. There are many good quotes for both words but no image popped into my head and then I thought of Nowhere Man by The Beatles.
Having visited Wikipedia I see Nowhere Man was written 49years ago this week and was The Beatles first song not about love, but written by John Lennon with a more philosophical bent. Tricky to depict a Nowhere Man so I went for a 1960s kaleidoscope of colour - a never ending wheel to nowhere etc etc. The background is a mix of all the bright Distress Inks I own, blended and spritzed with water etc. I've then used my Studio Calico Circle Graph Stencil - inked through with Versamark, clear embossed and then inked over with Faded Jeans Distress.
I love it - not sure it has anything to do with The Beatles and the swinging 60s but I think it's bright and cheerful!! Thanks for visiting and for all your comments on my last entry - very much appreciated!!
PS. Having linked this up I saw Helen's page using the same lyrics and thought mine was definitely missing a man. I rummaged and found my man stamp (freebie from Craft Stamper) so I've added my Nowhere man too!
