I Laid My Heart Out

Last year I went in and did some scrapping with Megan’s Grade 5/6 class
All the kids made a book to showcase work from the year
I only had the chance to go in once but the kids continued on their books
and they turned up fabulous
This year I am going back
to scrap with all the Grade 6’s
and I hope to do a little more with them this year than last.
This is my book from last year


the one and only page I completed last year


and my new page, made today, eagerly ready for tomorrow


and this year I hope to fill my book
the very cool steampunk figure is from Inka, at Altered Artifacts
Hoping to get more mixed media work down this year and I think this book will be a step in the right direction
Not to mention I just love watching the kids be inspired and the creative world it opens.

Pin It Now!

  3. Any chance we can get you a little school uniform?

  4. Fun. I like the idea of covering the journal with a paper sack. I have been using a manila folder which is very sturdy for the in and out of the desk.

  5. Love your book! The page of yourself with the glasses on is such fun! and of course I love the one with my little steam punk :)) Thanks for the plug too!

  7. Oh my... I just stumbled in here.. and first I am stunned by your creations.. how can I have missed them? how? You´re so inspirational! Adding you to my bloglist for sure.. The second thing to amaze me is your playlist.. I LOVE IT... Do you have it gathered somewhere like spotify and will you share it?
