The Season of Childhood

Dina Wakley is challenging art journalers to move outside their journals this month and work on a canvas or other background. She suggests doing two per week! So, here's my first project. It's a plaster nicho, painted with acrylics and featuring bunting from some Cosmo Cricket paper and painted chipboard from Maya Road.  There's a little journaling on the bunting which reads"Childhood is the most beautiful of all of life's seasons." It also fits perfectly into Gingersnap Creations subject for this month, "Babes and Tots." It feels great to be finishing some projects.  Got any great quotes about childhood to share?

This is gorgeous,Rinda...when I saw the picture....before reading what you'd written....I thought it was made of felt...and that you'd moved into using fabrics!!!!
A quote to amuse....'childhood is that wonderful time of life when all you need to do to lose weight is take a bath'

I must be feeling my age today because "youth is wasted on the young" came into my head! But I know that's not really what you are looking for, so I'm having another think..

I love your creation here Rinda, the colours are bright and cheerful!

I love Jacky's quote!! I saw this challenge posted and thought it was interesting, but I have so many other projects on the go!

As I was reading this, I was thinking this would be perfect for GC! Lovely and cheerful! Ok, my quote would have to be, "I can't wait until I am 18."
