As you can see ... I HAD A LOT OF FUN!!!!

Beatles songs are always an option for me - I went a bit funky and crazy
on this spread , refering to  BLACKBIRD (a "Beatles" song) .
McCartney has stated that the lyrics of the song were inspired by the unfortunate state of race relations in the U.S. in the 1960s -- even though my page hasn't to do anything with that at all ..
I had a lot of fun!!!

  1. Lied und Vogel hat ja was *Zwinker* dein Journal ist Fantasie erwiesen und ist so toll geworden erinnern mich an die Stare
    Hauptsächlich Spass beim werkeln und noch was schönes rausgekommen! Süss die Vögelchen!!!
    Schönes Sonntag wünsche ich dir!

  2. Wow, although I've never been a big Beatles fan, I had not heard that about that song. So glad you shared it. I personally like your interpretation of it far better! It's wonderful, and your little birds are so much fun. Have a super Sunday, dear Susi.

  3. That Beatles song is one of my faves, and I love your fun blackbirds on their colourful and bright background. have a nice Sunday, hugs, Valerie

  4. Fabulous funky background for your blackbirds, love it xx

  5. Man könnte damit ein Buch starten. Wie lautet der Dialog der beiden?
    Herzlich Pippa

  6. What a fun page Susi - love all the vibrant colours and the great design.

  7. Oh Susi, this is FABULOUS, I love, love it. It has all the energy and enthusiasm of the song.
    Great patchwork background and the birds are tremendous. It's terrific. The blackbirds are amusing, what an expression they have on their faces, love their striped beaks too.

  8. Liebe Susi,
    wooow, einer meiner Lieblingssongs damals... ich bekenne ein extremer Beatles Fan zu sein :-))). Das Bild ist grandios, fulminant und total genial... macht richtig Spass und lässt lächeln, davon kann man nicht genug sehen...
