Back to School

 
Hello to all,  here's my latest fun piece I played with in my journal. Well it's that time of year, Back to School time, new books and exercise pads, pens, paper, diary....it's fun getting all the new material and time table. My boys started school last week, so I got into this theme. Art often wakens my senses and memories rush back to me, like the smell of my very first little leather school bag, smells of school corridors and class rooms, so many old school memories. This month has a mellow feel to it, still so bright and summery but shadows lengthening by the day, it's ripe with smells of apples, figs, plums. This collage is a tribute to this Back to School month, to ripe mellow September.

Wonderful collage! School year started here in middle of August, so we are getting back into fall routine... There is always a wonderful sense of new and exciting in autumn mixed with wistful feelings towards passing summer... HPPF!

Precious page. School so important...husband just retired from teaching. First year he is not mired down in it. Grand kids doing well at school one in college. Memories here. Nice when some one's art makes me remember and feel good.

What fun vibrant colors, Kat! I am the same as you are when it comes to beginning the school year... i remember the smell of my own schoolbag when i was only in elementary school. September always brings back wonderful memories for me. Beautiful work Kat... xox

Kat -- Apples, figs & plums, Oh, those lingering Indian summer days; they just won't let go as the smells of autumn carry us in the wind -- apples, figs & plums -- I'm quoting myself -- thanks for the memories and inspiration. Blessings Terri

Funny, because to us in New Zealand this is nearly the end of the year, in a couple of weeks it will be the end of term 3 and we will heading for the last term of the year. Love this page, but mine would be a lot less vibrant and fresh at the moment!!
