Books = Joy and friendship

While reflecting on the post on favourite books for "September Daily Blogging", I realized books really bring me so much joy, and are great friends.

The theme for Collage Obsession this week was "Friends" and for Inspiration Avenue it was "What brings you Joy"

I then saw the poem by Arnold Lobel (altho I left off the last 2 lines - as I don't have a beard! - altho it will be a looong time until I read all the books I want and have to read).

The collage then fell into place. I used gelli paper  for the background and the big books. I used watercolour for the small books.

Fabulous! Love this. Books definitely bring me 'joy' as did your art. This would make a great card, poster or bookmark for a book lover. Thanks for sharing.

I don't think I will ever be able to read all the books I want- I have a huge wish list! How you've made this Gelli library is fabulous!! So glad you shared this with the party!
