Thankful for Teachers {Gratitude52 Art Journal}

G52Prompt35 Teachers

The prompt for Week 35 of the Gratitude52 Art Journal Challenge is to illustrate our appreciation for teachers.

I was born to be a teacher. I played “school” until I was old enough to actually start school. Then I was in school until I was a teacher. Then I was a teacher until I retired a few years ago. I taught kindergarten, fifth grade, gifted, and college. In my heart, I’m still a teacher.

“Back to School” is in my blood. Where are those school supplies? Well, I do have them. These days they are in the form of paints and colored pencils and coloring books and planners and sketchbooks.

Being a teacher makes me able to fully appreciate and be thankful for teachers. I am grateful for my teachers through the years, as well as for the teachers of my children and my grandchildren. Being an excellent teacher is a special gift.

On this one and last one, are these stamps you are coloring? You surely didn't draw the little girls from scratch?

Barbara said...

Correct, these are stamps, from Gorjuss. I stamped the images and then colored, with colored pencils on the Bible page, and with NeoColorII Watercolor Crayons on the Gratitude Journal (teacher) page.

Is the little girl you?

Yep, there I am!
