A Great Teacher

" Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day
with a GREAT TEACHER!"
Nothing like a great teacher to make our "school days" memorable.
Here is to all the great teachers in the world that make our schools a better place.
I have had several teachers that made all the difference by making the learning experience
fun as well as challenging.

This is the handpainted watercolor and sepia ink paper used on the card.
I wrote some Kanji script ...added a little mark making and some white gouache.

The tag before it was mounted onto the card.

Tag Tuesday has a tribute to our school days this week and Lots to Do is showing distressed Tags.....go have a look.
