Celebrating Childhood

This year, and as we meander a Path of Positivity, we are challenging you to Celebrate!  We will share different optional themes every month for you to celebrate!

We continue to Celebrate with Something Special About Your Childhood!   I chose to go with a collage on a journal page!  I loved pictures, going to movies, art, listening to records/singing, playing jacks, my sister, writing stories, my cat, Peanuts, puzzles, playing cards/games, and dressing in ways my mom didn't like!  hahaha  That's what the red, white and blue shirt is all about!  

I chose to do this in a collage style because I loved that as a child!  Whenever we were given a choice to make a collage or write a report or build something in a class, I would almost always choose the collage!

The background was done with Faber Castel Gelatos, inks, stencils (of balls, stars and puzzle pieces), and stamps.  Once that was dry, I put a cut and heat embossed "game board" piece on to represent my love of board games. 

Next came the fun part of choosing different images and pieces.  They are listed below.  I found this quote on the internet and it was credited to Hary Jo Putney.  

   We'd like to hear your ideas at Path of Positivity.  Come share them with us!  

Remember, you may share any sort of artistic medium over at PoP:  writing, cards, journals, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, baking, needle crafts, etc as long as it is positive!  The theme is always optional.
