It arrived in the mail in a plastic protector. It sat face-down in a pile on the counter, amidst flyers for furnace cleaning and fast food coupons. When I finally began to sort through the mountain of to-be recycling, I squealed. My kids came running — “another bear?!” [That’s another story for another day.]
We stood at the counter, everyone leaning in to get a good look, as I slowly turned the pages of the FALL 2012 CANADIAN SCRAPBOOKER. Click the images to enlarge!
My initial excitement began to allow self-doubt to creep in. Turn slowly, it may be so small a picture we might miss it, I thought. I knew Miss Know-It-All was mind-reading because she caught my eye with a sympathetic look. The more pages I turned, the more anxious I became. Then BINGO, page 109 and my canvas took up the WHOLE PAGE!
We admired the page, there was a round of hugs given, and then everyone went back to their day. Me too, except with a huge perma-grin on my face!
I will be teaching mixed-media canvas in September at Pointer. Hope to see you there!
