the mini Art Journal and the picnic

pages 10 & 11

RED GINGHAM

Enjoy the little things in life 
for one day you'll look back 
and realize they were the BIG things.

There are certain fabrics - like gingham - that make me nostalgic. 
The particular color of the gingham helps me to recall specific activities. 
With RED GINGHAM I can remember picnics. Looking back . . .
