Gothic Arches Challenge "Music"

Gothic Arches Challenge this week is "Music".... which has always played a huge impact on my life. I was a "wanna be" hippie in the late 60's early 70's but a little young for the whole scene, but I remember my very first psychedelic album I purchased. It was Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida... I still have the album to this day.
The the original name for the song was "In the Garden of Eden" but as the story has been told, the singer was a bit intoxicated and slurred his words, and this is what the rest of the band heard, therefore it stuck... lol... gotta love the 70's...
Anyways... had fun blowing through a straw moving my alcohol inks around on my paper. Used a bit of black embossing for pop. The "peace sign" was made using shrinky dink (so much fun) and the flower was handmade... (which will be sold very soon on our Etsy account) . Anyhow... loved the theme, got to go down memory lane for a bit. Hope you enjoyed :)
