I can't believe this is my last entry to Art Journal Journey this month. Usually September is a long month but this year it absolutely flew.
Thanks Elizabeth for this great back to school theme.
However this week has NOT flown by. Its been way too long, and it isn't over yet. Instead of just focusing on the hubby's surgery-that was suppose to happen-I am dealing with a very busy week at school. Oh my.
And the chilly weather we have now makes it feel more like October. Just giving us a taste I guess. It is nice to pull out the sweaters and fall clothes. :) I always feel like I have a new wardrobe when you pull out those clothes you haven't worn in 6 or 7 months.
So this journal page I made this little red school house. Here in New England red school houses are quite popular. I was curious why, so I looked it up and I found out that back in the 1800's a cheap paint could be made with iron oxide. Not only did it color the buildings red, it also was a great wood preservative. So I painted up this one room red school house, and added the class too.
I even added the school bell that could ring when it was time for class to begin.
And to celebrate Friday- yahoo- I am ready for it- I am linking up to Paint Party Friday. Thank you again Eva and Kristen for Hosting.
Another short post today. My school bell will be ringing this morning before I know it.
Thanks for stopping by.
