I have always been a reader. Even when I was too little to read, I would love to sit and look at the pictures in books.
So I made this page for Art Journal Journey as this month's theme is Every Journal Page Tells a Story.
I tired to create a "blackboard" that was reminiscent of those back in the day when I was a kid. But who wants something so typical? I made mine pink. :) I used some wood print paper to make the borders because in the old days blackboards had this wonderful wooden trim. Those white blips on the bottom are the chalk pieces.
And I found some other images in my FLOW magazine. The young woman doesn't really look much like me, but she works. And unfortunately I don't know what the names are on these children's books, because there are in Dutch. But that's OK, the pictures say it all.
I have fond memories of many of my children's books.
Nancy Drew, The Boxcar Children, A Wrinkle in Time, One Morning in Maine, Half Magic.
I think I could keep going, but I will spare you.
And I want to say I enjoyed all the comments on my football post yesterday. :) Seems like a lot of country doesn't like out New England team, so if you are one of those, the Pats did win and go on next week. Sorry. New England has never had a really good team up until the last 12-ish years so we are basking in a bit of good fortune while it lasts. Since it was a late game I dosed off at the end, but it certainly didn't start with the Pats playing their best. But I will take the W.
Today is an art day for me, which I am excited about. A Sunday at home is always nice.
Hope there is some fun in your day too.
