Summers of My Childhood



I have never done an art journal but I think I have started one today. During meditation at yoga today, for some reason, I started thinking about how wonderful my summers were when I was growing up. I spent most of them at my grandmothers' homes in Waterloo, Iowa and they were so delightful. I want my children and grandchildren to know that I had a great childhood with picture perfect and very simple summers...the best kind.



So, this is just my start. I found these amazing pieces of fabric at JoAnne's yesterday for 2.oo each and they are so beautiful. They reminded me of the things I use to find in my grandmother's chest.

I am not sure where this art journal is going. I am taking it a page at a time when it calls to me, just like the dress form. I do know that I will journal after all the preliminary work is done on each page and tell the story that makes me such a summer girl!
