All Things British

DSC09737_edited-1

I love this poster.  I just really, really do.  I love the look of it, the history of it--an inspiring story of courage and hope…and the beautiful British way of quietly “carrying on”.

So, of course I had to journal it.  A lot of it.  Two pages in my art journal devoted to my love of all things British—focusing on the poster and it’s history, which I found here.

Little bits & pieces of things found online…images, thoughts, sayings…a hand-painted “Union Jack” page & images from British-inspired stamps cover the pages…

Almost grafitti-like in its mish-mashiness, isn’t it?  But I like it this way….

I really AM glad my ancestors chose to come here 300+ years ago…chose to be Americans.  But, I also love those deep, deep roots of mine…
