Most of you have heard of the hot sultry "dog days of summer". Well, where I live we also have the long lazy "frog days of summer". The tree frogs are abundant here and make their presence known by just "hanging around" all day doing absolutely nothing. I feel this way on many hot summer days.
I spend many summer evenings sitting on my porch with a good book or art magazine. I thought it would be fun to make a tray for my sun room which could hold some lightly scented candles (or whatever). Since I love frogs so much, I chose to make it with a "frog" theme.
I painted game tokens bright orange and added them as feet to the tray. The corners of the tray were embellished with clear buttons that I topped off with punched images from the patterned paper. These clear acrylic buttons really add some luminosity and reflection that this photo just doesn't pick up. I also added the words "dogs days of summer" to the tray, along with a cute 3-D paper frog.
I hope that you enjoyed this project. I really like using products from Glue Art & Paper Studios. I encourage you to check them out. They have a wide range of items... with endless possibilities. And, the quality and service is great.
Happy "frog days of summer"!!!
