I am sorry I was unable to visit anyone's previous entries for the Quotes and Lyrics Challenge but I've been away and we had to postpone our return due to a death in the family. This might go some way towards explaining the subject matter of my entry for this fortnight's challenge. Marriage and age were the 2 words we had to choose from. There has been a lot of publicity recently regarding the centenary of the start of the First World War and I remembered part of the poem 'For The Fallen' written by Robert Laurence Binyon which is quoted as part of the Remembrance Day ceremonies.
'Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.'
The image is of one of the British war cemeteries in France. I wanted to keep the background colours light and used wild honey and spiced marmalade DIs with a small crackle stamp. The sunrays are a Craft Concepts embossing folder coloured with watercolour pencils and the punched sun reminds me of the sunsets I saw last week in Mumbai when the sun resembled a vivid orange ball gradually falling into the sea. The poppies are from a stamp set I bought from Lakeland many years ago, coloured with Coloursoft pencils.
Edited to add: I've added some birds to the page (Crafty Individuals) which I had thought of initially but forgot to do before scanning last night. I wanted to represent the souls of the dead flying free .
