Reading Books

Back to School is the theme over at

I did begin this tag with a couple of my own base layers
before  adding more details in my digital program.
A watercolour base and a piece with some raised stencils.

I also added these  two,  found relatives children.
 Who were standing so still for their photo, that they forgot to smile.

I have also used this tag with more digital altering for a journal page

I have  always read and enjoyed a good book,
hence it is books that have given me the inspiration for this page for Jo's theme
 Poetry in Motion  over at 

If you get so engrossed in the story you are reading,
 you just have to read ''just one page '' more.
Books have momentum all of their own.
My current reading group book is by Alan Furst   ''Spies of the Balkans''
and one that  I cannot put down, it has its own motion as the story unfolds.

Thank you for calling in today to see me, you are always very welcome here.

Please see sidebar for
digital information.

  3. Beautiful page! Wow, you have definitely worked your digital magic and not only have you included the Stephen King quote, I can see nursery rhymes and sayings too, and then you go onto to explain how books have a motion of their own - what a spectacular page for the "Poetry in motion" theme! Such fun that the children forgot to smile too 😁. Thanks so much, I'm pleased that you have joined in the fun at Art Journal Journey again 😁. Happy Saturday! J 😊
