I am so inspired by Elizabeth's choice of topic - Back to School - at Art Journal Journey - I have already started another page as well as completing this one.
I had a happy little girl the other day but now I have a little lad who feels like I used about Maths lessons.
I once ran away from school in the middle of a Maths lesson at Junior school when we had a supply teacher called Miss Hood who used to wear a red scarf around her throat. She had black hair cut into a spiky kind of bob and I don't know whether it was her or the Maths I was running away from, but I never liked Maths lessons after that.
By the time I reached High School I really struggled with Maths, I just couldn't see how to apply certain aspects into real life, and was moved out of the mainstream Maths class to do Economics which suited me far better - we learned about bank accounts, calculating bills from electric and gas meter readings, budgeting and other practical stuff!
I was always near the top of the class in other subjects , especially English, Art, History and Biology.
Strangely, these days I really enjoy doing number and logic puzzles.
Anyhow, enough about me, here is my page
Distress inks, texture paste, crackle paste, Distress crayons, stencils and stamps with some TH rulers stamped onto card and some TH label numbers. The boy and the quote which I stamped onto tissue are Lindsay Mason's stamps.
The boy was coloured in with Distress Markers.
By the way, when I got home my Mum gave me a drink and walked the mile back to school with me, where I had to apologise to the teacher!
Thanks for looking, Chris
