Summertime Journal

I promised that I would show you my completed summer art journal I made for the Write Place Write Now E-Zine, so here it is. This was a perfect assignment for me because I love all the colors of summer, sand and water. Summertime makes me think of aqua blue water dotted with sail boats, green pistachio ice cream cones, ice cold glasses of yellow lemonade and pale pink sunset skies. Ahhhh....I can practically feel the sand between my toes from just writing those words. OK, I've got to go slip into my flip-flops and fix myself some chicken salad in a tomato cup right now! What makes you think of summertime?

A sunny, breezy day is about all it takes to make me think of summer... that and fireworks, hot dogs, apple pie, and a beach ball.

I also LOvE your journal, and all you filled it with. Thanks for sharing, it really is very nice Jeanne.

Oooh, your journal is fantastic!! I loved every page!

I love how you associated the summer things with lovely colors--you are such an artist!

I guess I associate summer with our cabin...a sparkling, cool lake, giant pines, campfires, marshmallows on a stick, fishing early in the morning, kingfishers and ospreys, oh...stop me, I could go on all day!! lol

Have a great summer!
Smiles, Karen

Thanks ladies...all your comments have touched my heart!
Jenny, that quote on the daisy page is by Anne Morrow Lindbergh. Here's the entire quote: "One can get just as much exaltation in losing oneself in a little thing as a big thing. It's nice to think one can be recklessly lost in a daisy."
