This week I have painted Elderberries in my Calendar of Firsts.

You can see me painting the berries in this week’s video:

This is  just a short video to share how I work. I would love to hear how you create.

Do come over to the private FaceBook group for families working with their children to encourage one another in our journaling pursuits. It would be lovely to see you there.

  1. thanks for sharing.
    I’m impressed you already have elderberries in your area; our garden is full of elder trees, and not a single ripe berry yet!
