Wind-Blown Pages

My mom found some really neat books that are over one hundred years old, and a few days ago I had some fun taking pictures of them. The wind was actually quite helpful in turning the pages of the books. Continue reading “Wind-Blown Pages”

Book Page ATCs {Art Lab Episode 15}

Hello all you artists!
Today I have some fun, simple, and beautiful art inspiration for you guys.

I got an old book at my Grandma’s that she didn’t want, and I used it to make some art.

For my first ATC, I cut out the shape of a book and glued it to an ATC that I had colored yellow. Then I outlined the cut-out, and added the word ‘Books’ and some swirls.

For my second one I cut a page from the book into multiple strips and glued them all crisscross to my blank ATC.

Next I flipped the ATC over and cut off the parts that were sticking off of it.

After that, I outlined the pieces in Sharpie. Ta-da!

Then I made one more. For this one, I started by drawing polka dots all over my ATC with an orange Sharpie.

Then I cut a squiggle shape out of a page of the book and glued that in the center of my card.

I outlined my squiggle in Sharpie and added an extra detail or two.

Book collage ATCs are really fun to make, and I love the result! You could also use a sheet from a piano book to make an ATC.

Have fun making art!

Book Review: Anne of Ingleside

Hey guys! I was supposed to write a review for school, so I thought why not post it on here? 😀 I wrote this a while ago. 😉


Title: Anne of Ingleside (Book #6 of the Anne of Green Gables Series)

Author: L.M. Montgomery

Published: 1939

Number of Pages: 277

Genre: Novel

Summary: Anne is now living at Ingleside with Gilbert, their five, soon to be six, children and Susan Baker, their faithful handmaiden for fifteen years. The children come upon many adventures and mishaps including a ‘GLOOMY HOUSE’, a new baby sister, and a journey of six miles alone in the night.

Review:

Anne of Ingleside is the sixth book in the Anne of Green Gables series, but in my opinion, it is one of the best. This book covers the childhood of Anne’s six children: Jem, Walter, Nan and Di, Shirley, and Rilla and all their mischief and mistakes. All of their stories are very cleverly told and it is hard to set this book down in the middle of a chapter.

L. M. Montgomery wrote the book in the point of view from both Anne and her children. While they don’t actually narrate the story, they each have their own chapters that tell about the adventures in a way that makes you sympathize with the children.

There is no real main character- there is not even a huge plot- but it is just as interesting as any other book with a full plot. Really all the author wants is to tell about the children, sometimes stringing in larger parts that involve all of them, and sometimes just giving each child its own problem. They usually come to their beloved mother (Anne) with their problems and Anne will tell them what to do next time.

I believe the author meant to write about Anne’s children in sort the same style she wrote about Anne herself in the first book. And I think she did that very well. The writing is not hard at all to read, but it still is a very good book. She does sometimes spend a bit too much time on topics that are not quite so interesting as others, but the way she tells things makes it worth reading every part.

I think Anne of Ingleside is one of my favorite books and I highly recommend reading it. Of course you should read the five books before it, but do not stop after the first one or you will miss many lovely stories.


That was a little harder than I thought it might be! Did you enjoy this review? Have you read any of the Anne books?

Goodbye for now!
