There always seems to be one teacher that stands out in your school memories......not all are your favorites, but they stay in your memories regardless. I have two, from grade school that I've carried with me for years, one I loved and the other......well, she and I didn't really like each other, as I remember it....LOL!
The one teacher, that I have fondest memories of, was brought to mind while visiting some of my blog friends' AJJ-Back to School challenge pages. Her name was Mrs. Moen and there are many reasons why she was my favorite, besides just being a darn good teacher. She was my 4th and 5th grade teacher and she always read to the class 30 minutes everyday, and the books could be of our choosing. We heard wonderful stories, of course we had to behave ourselves to have the honor of being read to. She was strict, but always fair and always positive. She was also a neighbor, living on the next block down from us, and she was my Sunday School teacher for more than a couple of years.......AND she was the great, great aunt of my best friend......but all that aside, she was my very favorite teacher.
With all that said I did this journal page with her in mind. It was done on a mop-up paint page, from this summer's activities. I used a die cut as a stencil, with some black ink along two edges, then took the die cut ( as it was black form the ink) and adhered it to the bottom corner and the top corner. There were some Gelatoes used to tone down the colors and a block of wood, with a rubber band wrapped around it to make the hash marks. I used acrylic paint for the apple and a black marker for the lettering and a little detail work.
This challenge is for the month of September, and I think Elizabeth - The Altered Book Lover has been a fantastic hostess. There is still time left to join the challenge, it doesn't have to be about teachers as you can see from what other's have linked up with......over HERE.
