After I set the weekly challenge at The Boxx last week, I started thinking about how I could use more of the kids art work as part of my pages. Tahlia has been home sick and I wanted to distract both her and Ethan from feeling so unwell. As part of this therapy, I dragged the paints out for them to have a play. I gave them sheets of plain paper as well as some torn book pages.
I loved this little flower she had painted. The effect was quite delicate. I knew I wanted to include it on a layout but not necessarily let it be the focus of the journaling. I mounted it onto raw chipboard and inked the edges. I've punched a hole in the top and thread a piece of string through it, so it resembles a tag. Her art has now become a unique embellishment on a page about her growing up.
journaling says: please don't be in a hurry to grow up. be a little patient and enjoy the journey..
