Another song by the Turtles is a summer 1960s song I I love.
Now you may be wondering where on earth I am going with his post...let me explain...........
My Guest Design package arrived from Tracy over at Noor UK last week and among the goodies were these fun Dutch Doobadoo stencils and Paperart words and images. Notice the words Flower power, music love etc.
The tune Summer Breeze and So Happy Together came into my mind and that was it I knew I had to create something funkie, zany and hippy!
So down to my studio I went to grab the most clashing bright distress inks to make a 60s/70s inspired background for my silhouette.
Yes I did say bright didn't I. Some flicks of water added some more interest.

Please pop over to see me at Noor UK and perhaps leave some groovy kind of love...yes I know all those songs keep popping in to my head.
I would like to enter my Biba project into the following fun challenges.
