Sometimes things just seem to stack up!
Years ago I used to work in an office where things came to me in piles of paperwork clipped together in a bulldog clip, I was one of the youngest in the office and I had to input the data from the invoices of suppliers and then calculate the bills to the customers for work done - I had a machine that worked on electricity that broke down regularly which then meant switching to one with a handle. If you know me I am not so keen on numbers so this was not my ideal job.
I left the job to continue my education, first an Further Education college then off to Teacher Training college.
For most of the years I was teaching I was in my ideal job (I won't go into the ones that weren't) and over the years I counted my blessings that I wasn't still in that office!
As it is now around exam results time I want to say to all those youngsters that maybe don't get the results they wanted first time around to always remember that anything is possible - you may not get want you want immediately but if you work for it and have patience, you can make it happen!
Looking back and counting blessings is very satisfying!
I got so into creating this background that I totally forgot to take any photos.
It was very simple though, I added the paint with my fingers (probably as well I didn't take any pics!)I added a JOFY alphabet stamp(Set 63) and some Everything Art circles from set EEA06 Next, a little bit of doodling and then the image (from a wallpaper sample that we thought we might use in our hall - didn't in the end!)I watered down the claret paint a little and stamped the Sara Nauman (ESN04) quote onto the paper.
I am entering at Paper Artsy topic 13- the theme is to use the colours Mint, Sage, Claret and Gold
Art Journal Journey where Elizabeth's theme is 'Count Your Blessings'
Thanks for looking, Chris
