Hello everyone. Hope everyone's week is going well.
Today I have a busy day. I'm scheduled to go in and clean out my classroom. One person per wing because of Covid-19, so it's my day today. (And it will be awfully empty and quiet so maybe my work will get done faster as there will be no one to chat with.) I have done some cleaning already before we were kicked out of the building, but I still have a lot of things to get rid of and a few things to bring home. I was hoping to do this in June when I might be able to meet my replacement and see what, if anything, they wanted, but I don't want to leave them a mess they have to clean. I must admit this is something I just want to get done, and I am a little sad to have to do it at the same time. I will see my friends from work, and IF I miss the kids I can can go back and be a substitute teacher, but my room will never be my room again.
Oh well, I don't think it is going to take me that long to get over this. It is just a room. Especially since I have reached the point I am really ready to retire.
And today I have some new art to share.
Mia's challenge at Art Journal Journey is flowers.
I started with a Dina Wakely spray paint and stencilled background. I had the seed packet stamp in my stash, and I stamped some flowers onto it. Then I ripped off a corner and used some little plastic beads to look like seeds were falling out of the package. The bird is cut out of a magazine page. I had the tiny plant pot stamp, and then I painted and drew the seeds growing out of the pots. The lady is an image I had, and then I added some lace which I also had in my stash. Finally I used some letter stickers to create my quote.
I must say lately I have been pulling some old stamps out of my stash, and it is like I have new stamps to use.
And I am also going to link my page up to More Mixed Media Challenge, which is anything goes with optional pink.
And how about a few more spring photos from a chilly yesterday in New Hampshire?
The weeping cherry is really flowering. Too bad the flowers don't last very long.
But the sugar maple will have leaves very soon.
And besides my daffodils, my hyacinths are looking nice.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
