...They are words from a kids programme my son watches, The Regular Show, from a song that gets into your mind and never leaves lol.
Just the mere mention of summertime sets off those songs that gets into your head all day or just crops up in a hum when you least expect it, triggering all sorts of memories for me.
While I was making the following pieces I was 'You Tube'-ing all sorts of summer songs from Dancing Queen to Californication and Stevie Nicks singing Sara (I hadn't listened to that song for over 20 years and it was like going back in time!!) Then got sucked into Dr Hook's Sylvia's Mother for somereason which led to Terry Jack's Seasons in the Sun and by then there was no hope for me as I spiralled in to Starry Starry Night....
I know!! I should have stopped when things were jolly lol
You see what I have to go through to get the feel of a theme!! lol
anyway...I digress - on with the crafty stuff...
Crafty Individuals are running the theme Time for Summer seeing as it's now officially British Summertime and so I made this box from four of the Crafty Individials tags, two fairy plates and a selection of flowers.
This is the softer more thoughtful 'chiffon colouring' view. Does that make sense? In real life this has a very subtle gentle feel to it but still remains summery I hope.
a closer snoop...using mainstamp image CI137)
then twirling it round to the other side we can see the more typical summer colours (in RL they are reds and bright orange not muted rusts)...
and a closer look at this side (main stamp is CI132)..
Summertime has taken a twist today here in the UK. We have sunshine but it's frosty white out on the grass and apparently Scotland are expecting snow!
To finish my post I'll leave you with just ONE song that to me says summer.
Whats your summer song??
Depends on your age I guess as to the era.
My summer ones tend to stem from the 70's/80's usually rock ones.
But I think given just one choice this has to be the all time knee patting, beer-garden table tapping song of all time...one of those (as the phrase is nowadays) 'guilty pleasure' songs...
So there we are... that summer feeling for me. Half a lager and lime/tequila and orange, beer garden, summer evenings, back in the day lol
Why not hunt out your all time favourite summer time tracks and get 'in the zone' lol and hopefully you will get your crafty items out at the same time and join in with the challenge. I look forward to seeing all the summery work.
