I have always loved reading and books of all kinds appeal to me.
We didn't have TV when I was young, so my earliest encounters with books
were the stories that were read to me.
I am joining the folk again at
Back to School
This side of the journal spread is all about Fairy Tales. Hidden meanings never came to mind back then, just the magic, make believe and hopefully a happy ending to the tale.
The background was scribbled crayons, which I blended with a wet wipe and sprinkled with a little Brusho powder.
The cut outs are papers sent me by a friend. Graphics 45 I think.
Butterflies are stamped and fussy cut and left over from another project.
This page was made in a digital program.
Growing older, the magic disappears, with the need to gather knowledge.
Books are for information, aids to learning, filling your head with facts, maybe at the time, they are of no interest to you. But, they have to be learned in detail, in order to pass exams.
School days pass, gathering speed and when we leave and go out into the world.... How much do we truly remember. I would say quite a lot stays, its there stored for the day we may be asked a question, that would jog our memory and hopefully we would be able to recall the relevant facts.
Thank you for stopping by to see me today,
you are very welcome and your comments are always appreciated.
