Introduction to Art Journal Selections

F. The gratitude and lack of fear of creating shown by a child

The left side above features one of Mark's painted scraps from Design II class, some miscellaneous found papers, and both sides include some cutouts from a child's thank you card. My husband Tom made a donation to the school at our parish and we received a thank you card in return from one of the students. I cut out the rainbow and the sun and some of the words from the child's card. On the right side the background of the page is a page from a found book and my husband colored on it with markers. I had brought some of my journal pages to a family gathering where I knew there would be several kids and adults who enjoyed coloring together.
