Feels Like a Summer Evening

Its just about the weekend. I am ready. :) 
Not only does my one week spring vacation begin this weekend, but its also almost the end of a very  busy work week. But today we had temperatures well into the 70's ( in the low 20 degrees Celsius) and it felt so much like summer.  Loving it.:)
So today I have a journal page for you. Since it is Friday I am linking up to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting this fantastic site.
And I am also linking up to Art Journal Journey. This month's ' hostess is Linda and the theme is For the Record. My journal page is based on a Jimmy Buffet song. If you are familiar with his music, you can probably guess my song. It is his song  Fins.
My fish Gelli print might be a bit busy for this page, but I thought the color and fish design was a great match for the  music.  My photo got a little cut off on the right side, but those fins in the waves came out just like I wanted.
I like it much better when I cut the words off the bottom. Maybe I need to paint over them so they are plain black. I think the white outlining is what  bothers me the most since it seems a little too busy with the rest of the page.
But when I take out the words, you don't know what song it is, do you?
That's all for me. Thanks for stopping by.

I adore this painted journal page, and loved the play on words. Very cleverly painted and well thought out. I actually like both versions, but I'm not one who needs words to make a page work, so I enjoyed it both ways.

I thought of you today when I saw that Prince had died. I thought of your take on Purple Rain that you shared recently on AJJ. Hope your last day of school before break is WONDERFUL.

Blue and yellow. Those are definitely summer colors. Fun painting

Oh I love it!! I love both with and without words!! The cut down version could be re-purposed as a summer theme one month for your banner!! What is the song I'm wondering... I may google that!! Great fun colours...I think I am so in love with these two colours of late too!! We have had some beautiful exceedingly record breaking weather too! Enjoy!
