It is called Bed in Summer by R. L Stevenson and it reminds me of those daylight bedtimes you endure as a child in the summer when you think it is far too early to go to bed!
Here it is in its entirety.
Bed in Summer
In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candlelight.
In summer quite the other way,
I have to go to bed by day.
I have to go to bed and see
The birds still hopping on the tree
And hear the grown-up peoples' feet
Still going past me in the street
And does it not seem hard to you
When all the sky is clear and blue
And I should like so much to play
To have to go to bed by day?
I am so glad I found it and I have now learnt the last verse. Inspired by this vintage poem I decided that I would use it for some new art journal pages.
I looked around my garden and decided to use the bright floral colours still proudly showing off from my pots as the base colours.
So here are my finished pages.
I would like to enter my AJ pages into the following challenges;
Artistic stamper anything goes
Mixed media world gorgeous textures
Country View Crafts summertime
Papertake weekly take your pick I have chosen vintage/distressed
Simon says stamp Wednesday anything goes
Pixie's Snippet Playground week 192 here I used some tiny snippets of card to die cut my leaves and flower.
Love to create anything mixed media #18
Cheery Lynn Frame it I drew a frame for my flower and leaves
Anything but a card celebration mine is a celebration of summer
That Craft Place Mixed media, anything goes
The weather was on our side over the weekend and we enjoyed such a fun day out yesterday with our friends. We visited Standen in East Grinstead, West Sussex, such a gorgeous National Trust home. I will share some photos and a post really soon. Today the weather has other ideas and we woke up to heavy rain which has now eased but looks set to fall all day. However it's bank holiday Monday here in the UK so no work and as it needs to be an indoor kind of day. I am spending time in my garden...in my studio....crafting! Yippee!! Enjoy your day too.
Bye for now,
