fireflies



supplies in EXIF properites

 

I debated on posting this. I was browsing some of the tutorials and came across one Jody West did on Art Journaling. I know I didn't have the collection she used although, I did have the buildings silhouette she used. So I looked through my stash to see if I had something similar. In her tutorial Jody mentioned that song lyrics are good for doing art journaling. When I saw Syndee's Artful life collection, the dandelion sspaper, it reminded me of the song "Fireflies" by Owl City and it went from there. I only used some of the lyrics:

You would not believe your eyes

If ten million fireflies

Lit up the world as I fell asleep

'Cause they fill the open air

And leave teardrops everywhere

You'd think me rude but I would just stand and stare

I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly

It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep

'Cause everything is never as it seems

'Cause I'd get a thousand hugs

From ten thousand lightning bugs

As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head

A sock hop beneath my bed

A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

I'd like to make myself believe that planet earth turns slowly

It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep

'Cause everything is never as it seems

Oh, Kelly I'm so glad you posted this! I love your journaling poem and immediately I was thinking of Jody and how she used song lyrics so successfully as journaling... Your background and symbols are amazing and put together so well -- this is awesome in so many ways and really feels like being in dreamland... :)
