I think this will be my last chance to join in with Elizabeth's Back To School theme at Art Journal Journey.
I still have ideas buzzing around so there may be more schooldays to come in my journal in the future!
My page is about someone who influenced my teaching, a much loved lady by all!
She was my eldest son's Year 1 teacher and I was also privileged to have worked alongside her for a term.
The photograph here was one of many taken on this day…by other parents who were preparing themselves for her retirement.
Sadly my other two boys did not have her as a teacher. One comment from a parent was that her classroom was 'like a cosy nest'. She made everyone feel special!
My son is there right by her feet, partly hidden, wearing a blue and red jumper.
The background was made by sprinkling with Paper Artsy Infusions and spritzing with water, then using Seth Apter's 'Timeless' Stencil Girl stencil.
I stamped some Carabelle Studios small stars and a bigger star and inked the edges of the page, photo and quote( a vellum one I have had for ages) with Ground Espresso DI.
Finally I used a gold pen to colour in some of the small stars.
Thanks for looking, Chris
