"school memories". Since I was in grammer school in the middle to late 1950's, that took more than memories. It took some imagination too. I have to admit I would have used some of the Dick and Jane books, but since my ink in colors was low (read nearly non existant) in my printer I couldn't print the pics. I did find some interesting black and white line drawings when I Googled 'flash cards'. At Crayola.com, they have some nifty coloring sheets on all kinds of subjects. Worked like a charm. I needed black and white flash cards because my mother made us a set of add, subtraction, multiply and divide flash cards from the boxes that chicken pot pies came in. Yes we did eat a lot of them. There were five of us and you could get 4 cards out of each box. The boxes were white cardboard with a paper wrapper around it. Mother would wash them off and cut them up. Good thing we loved chicken pot pies (Banquet is my favorite brand) and all of us still do 60 yrs later.Swanson was good buy Banquet had double crust!! Wow, 60 yrs. ~ how time does fly!!!!! Anyhoo if you need any black and white drawings, check out
Now for the ART BAG CHALLENGE ~ I have only had a whole month to do this and as usual I am tail end charlie again. This was supposed to be paper bags with an autumn theme and Anna talked about some Alice in Wonderland theme too. I just went with the Autumn theme.
I really didn't have any 'Alice' stuff (although I LOVE the 'Alice' stuff I have seen in stamps and paper etc. Out of most colors of ink on my printer so I couldn't print anything although I have collected some pretty good clipart in vintage Alice (which is the one I am more familiar with anyway, I never saw the new movie). Anyway maybe do some Alice later on.
Once again I hit the church bulletins and cut leaves out of a pic of a pile of leaves and the rake came with it. Used brown construction paper for the purse and chiffon ribbon for the strap. (PS I have already bought an evening bag for the embellished bag in Nov. Just wait til you see it!!!!)
Well, that's about it for these two challenges, I am working on some more 'card' challenges, so we will see how they come out. Til later on this week, have a blessed day and take care.
