I have two spreads today even though each is independent of the other.
I want to begin by honoring all teachers with this quote.
The best teachers
teach from the heart
not from the book.
Materials used include computer generated text, a heart cut from some of my painted paper, a bird punch, and an image of books fussy cut from a book store cafe menu.
For my second spread, I also believe parents need to be involved with teaching their children,
just as much as a good teacher does.
Parents need to pick up when the school day ends.
Of course, there's always time for a bit of humor when it comes to parents and their teaching skills.
For this second entry, I actually began with the two quotes, then found a really old magazine image I thought would match the sentiments. First I laid down a sheet of pale green copier/printer paper. To that, I added the found image, some gifted glittery tape, and computer generated text outlined with pigment ink.
Bleubeard and I are delighted you joined us today where we paid tribute to all those teachers who shaped our minds and empathized with parents who must shape those minds when school is out and where teachers leave off. Please also join us at Art Journal Journey where the theme this month is Back to School. There's still plenty of time to join in on the fun.
