Left of Centre 75 with A Day for Daisies

Another week, and another new challenge over at Left of Center. This time the challenge is Fun Frights and is sponsored by A Day for Daisies. Now, I had something completely different planned which would have suited the challenge better, but sadly it just didn't pan out, so on to plan b. I used the holding fireflies image which is a freebie at the time of writing. I also used a sheet of paper from the DCWV Once Upon a Time series, wich had this great window scene. I printed her in sepia sized to fit so that she looks like she's sitting on the window sill. I coloured her with copics, although only having a few colours means that it's a little off IYKWIM, but hey ho - you get the idea.

Now for the fun part. I cut a little hole in the paper slightly smaller than the jar of fireflies then stuck the jar on to cover the hole. I then put a small batter operated tea light behind the jar and put the whole lot in a shadow frame. When you turn the tea light on you get the effect of the fireflies glowing, and because th DCWV paper is so thick, the light only shines through the jar and not the rest of the scene. Looks cool in real life, but sadly my camera thinks otherwise and this was, believe it or not, the best picture I could get! You get the idea hopefully.

Anyway, have fun and hope to see you again soon.

Don't forget, next month is sci fi month over here with the chance to win some real prizes. Also remember to show us your project* for a chance to win real life craft vouchers. (*see previous posts or facebook for terms)  You can now use this link up tool to participate.

  1. I think it looks really cool even with your temperamental camera. What a great idea - it's just lovely and magical!
