Elizabeth's choice of theme at Art Journal Journey is 'Back to School'
Having experienced school as a pupil, a teacher and a Mum I have lots in my head - wishing I had more time to take part!
This page is about having identical twins in a class - a new teachers nightmare I'm sure! When I was teaching as a supply teacher while my boys were young I once had a class with two sets of twins in - one set of girls were easy as Mum used to tie different colour ribbons in their hair. The others, boys, were much more difficult to distinguish by looks but their behaviour was very different.
I have taught quite a few twins in classes over the years - many of them non identical - much easier!
My background started as a gessoed page with a hint of green. I used my new JOFY mini girl for my twins (can you tell the difference?)
I stamped some JOFY mini flowers and used the small circles from my new JOFY flower set, using light coloured inks. The 'ground' for the twins is the alphahabet from the girl mini.
'This is me' from one of Lindsay Mason's sets was stamped onto some mop up tissue and stuck onto the page with Matte Medium gel.
I am not sure where the UNIQUE came from but it fits very nicely into where my idea for the page came from! We are all individuals and unique - something a good teacher will recognise!
I added some random dots to my background (not enough!) then added inky circles using container tops to echo the shape of the faces.
By now you will have spotted that one of the twins has a more carefree approach to her appearance, although she will have to be careful with that untied shoe lace!!
I would like to link to Art Journal Journey - 'Back to School'

It's good to be back home again for a while!
Thanks for looking, Chris
