 It's a rare thing for me to be able to just sit down and do something fun...just for me.
So I wanted to make sure that it expressed how I feel.
Carefree and grateful basically sums it up.
I love Pooh's expression, he looks like he is a state of bliss, doesn't it?
Like he is skipping through the air with clouds under his feet. 

I began by gessoing my page first because I knew I was going to be using Faber Castell's gelatos as the base of my page and they just glide over a gesso'd page with a little water. Don't add too much water or they will slide right off the page too, lol I drew Pooh on a piece of text and colored him in with gelots also.

I used Faber Castell's gesso to color in the circles too, now it takes several coats if you do the gesso over the gelatos...or you can add a coat of varnish over the gelatos like I did to speed up the process. Faber Castell PITT pens were used to color in the letters.

Here is my journal laid open with my Wizard of Oz page on the opposite side. I do believe I am going back through my childhood visiting some of my favorite characters that I grew up with.

Yesterday is history.
Tommorow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present.
