Sir Paul Sings

Sunday, November 1, 2015

Hey there and welcome to November. Yes, November. I'm shaking my head too.  Well, It's time for my second reveal of the day. This one is for Stuck?! Sketches. We have teamed up this month with Scrap It With A Song. If you use our sketch and inspiration from their song, you can enter your project on both challenge blogs. 

The song is Octopus' Garden by The Beatles. You can use the title or lyrics as inspiration. Here is our sketch:

Here is my page using the sketch and Octopus' Garden as inspiration. I used 2 photos, but changed their size. I used several patterns, so I opted to keep the edges straight and not create the flagged edges. To balance the page, I also flipped the placement of the title and journaling.

My sister and I were at the Paul McCartney concert in Los Angeles last summer. The photo of us is a selfie, and the second photo is the set list, which included many old Beatles favorites. How is this related to Octopus' Garden? Well, Sir Paul was in The Beatles, and Octopus' Garden is a Beatles song. A stretch? Yes, but pretty relatable just the same. 

That's it for today. Join us at Stuck?! Sketches for this challenge and your chance to win a prize provided by our generous sponsors.
