Today we are paying homage to the old school desks.
I felt like I was dreaming when Valerie showed the same style desk a couple of days ago. And we need to remember that these desks used to be in nearly every classroom.
Seems many people remember these desks,
especially when prompted to remember
a few of the specifics. The reason I know about these desks is because I purchased one in perfect condition at an estate sale one year.
And because my journal is too large for my scanner, here are the relevant parts of both sides.
Materials used on the left include an image from the internet, sheet music, variegated thread, and a 3-D image sewn to a sheet of glittery scrapbook paper.
Materials used on the right side, include pink stick-on embellishments, computer generated text surrounded by pink ink, sheet music, and a part of a pink tape measure glued to more of the glittery scrapbook paper.
Bleubeard and I are delighted you joined us today when we paid homage to these old school desks, and hope you will join us at Art Journal Journey where we're celebrating all things Back to School.
