Tell Me A Story MMM


This is my piece for Mixed Media Monday. I took the challenge of Tell Me A Story very literally. It's a spread for a round journal I'm working on. It's called The Secret To Me. This is my third layout and I had already decided to do a page on reading and books. This old photo is me engrossed in a book! It was Father's day today and this is the second one without my dad and I was thinking about him. One of my fondest memories of him was our story time. Him reading to me or making up the most wonderful tales and then illustrating them in pencil. Thanks DB for the love of stories and the gift of art. 2 pieces!

Hope you all had the weekend you wished for and were able to do something fun and creative!
