The colour yellow 2

At AJJ this month The colour yellow has been chosen as the theme and hosted by Rike from Rike's Art

I had a few songs going around in my head when thinking about yellow but decided upon a fun piece to cheer up the miserable wintry days here.   
I painted the 'Yellow submarine - mobile home' and background ( see 2nd image) using Derwent Aquatone sticks and then added the rest of the elements digitally. I used a digi-kit called 'Fantasy mermaids' by Daisytrail. I made the little signpost which says 'Mobile Home for Sale or Rent. For details Apply within'. :)

Last post I mentioned about the decorating disaster with yellow and from comments received apparently I was not alone with that happening.... oh :(
I have since recalled another yellow disaster - where I got covered with green fly while wearing a yellow T-shirt. I was walking by the sea, not even in a garden, and a swarm of them came  across the sea from somewhere. My dear hubby just laughed saying they must have thought I was a flower  :)  - argh!!  

All from me this time..
Happy Friday, have a great weekend
and thank you so much for stopping by...

  1. Yellow may not be your color, but you haven't lost your sense of humor. I'm still laughing over the yellow submarine the mermaid is trying to get rid of. I'd buy it if I lived closer! It's a gem and your digital skills always impress me. Thanks for joining us again with Rike's theme at Art Journal Journey, dear Gill.

  2. Now that's a SUPER idea for this challenge! Love the page Gill.It is perfect. Happy weekend. Hugs-Erika

  3. Wonderful yellow submarine page, great idea! Have a great weekend, hugs, Valerie

  4. What a fabulous page! The colours look amazing together and your wording made me smile 😁. I'll be singing that song for the rest of the day too! We have sunshine here today which matches the happiness on your page although it is also quite windy today so we'll need to wrap up warm 😉. Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊 x

  5. A fantastic page Gill. I love the bright colours and have a couple of popular songs floating around in my head after I read the post. The page is bright and happy to see.
    I smiled at the green fly on your T-shirt, my hubby would have laughed as well.
    Happy weekend wishes, I hope the winds don't get to bad, it is really wild here.

  6. What a funny page to cheer up the miserable wintry days - you made me smile! Your painting is gorgeous and your digital addings are very clever! Now I see it's a yellow submarine (and not a duck, haha), you know what I mean.
    Thank you so much for linking such a fabulous piece to my yellow theme at AJJ! I appreciate it!
    Wish you a happy weekend, dear Gill!
    Liebe Grüße, Rike xx

  7. Simply perfect Gill! What a cheerful creation! I have to smile about thr green fly on your shirt -lol! I created something in yellow today and a mini fly sat down and obviously wanted to eat something of the yellow and I saw that the new fashion colour for this spring is also many shirts and even skirts and dresses in yellow - that would never fit me... can't imagine that many woman can wear yellow.

    Happy weekend and thank you very much for supporting Rike with this amazing entry!
    Big hugs, Susi

  8. This is fabulous Gill, such a happy piece. Drawing and digital are two things that I cannot do (at all!) so it's a double well done from me. Have a very happy weekend, Sue xx

  9. I love this creative art 😃

  10. The yellow submarine mobile home is marvellous, looks so cosy. That's clever making the signpost and I think the yellow fish are giving it a good look. On second thoughts maybe they are saying "What in sea is that!" The blue fish is looking rather blasé, seen it all before. I haven't seen it before and I like it all very much, it's happy and fun.

  11. Oh, no. Now I have both songs stuck in my head :)
    Your Yellow Submarine entry for Rike's AJJ theme is wonderfully creative; better than I could ever have imagined. I just love it, Gill!
    And I'll have to remember never to wear yellow while walking at the coast.

  12. haha how awesome is this love the fun bright page Gill, you are such a fun loving lady.xx

  13. I adore your yellow submarine page Gill! Made me smile on this blustery morning! At least the sun is shining again today. Hope you've survived the storms with no structural damage.

  14. your painting is gorgeous.
    have a great weekend
