I made this page for Elizabeth's Summer Love challenge at Art Journal Journey after sitting outside one evening watching some fireflies flashing. Fireflies are one of those little things that make summer special for me
Did you know that each type of firefly has its own light flashing pattern?
So I doodled my jar and I think it looks more like a drinking glass with aluminum foil over the top than a lidded jar, so use a little imagination when you look at it. I stamped the insects and turned them into fireflies with a dab of yellow paint.
I also scribbled this poem by Robert Frost on the page. Robert Frost is one of my favorite poets, and he was a native of New Hampshire where I live. This was a new poem for me, but it was perfect for my page.
When I was a kid I had a book called Sam and the Firefly. Sam is an owl who has Gus the firefly write words in the sky for him. Of course writing words in the sky at night isn't always a smart thing.
Anyone else remember this book? I need to see if I can find mine, though it may be long gone. There is a box of kids books in the attic and it might be in there.
So the newest challenge at Try It On Tuesday just happens to be Let It Shine, and I think my page works, so I am linking up.
I'm finally home today after a couple of days out playing with friends. I should clean my house a little bit, but there's lots of other things I can think of doing other than that. I am really in summer mode. Oh boy.
Thanks for visiting.
