Bulletin Boards, Bulletin Boards Three Years of Creative Bulletin Boards for All Seasons

Bulletin Boards for all seasons......for the last three school years I have been painting the bulletin board for the PTA in the front hall of the school house. It is the bulletin board that you see when you first come in the school in front of the office. Which I am soo happy to do...I love when the children are so happy to see what is next and the reactions of them are so cute when you hear their little comments in the hallways. Some of the children come and hug me and it just thrills me to no end...I have soo enjoyed sharing my art with the children.
This bunny one was for Easter of 2012.

The pom poms I made from my own tutorial go HERE
 and hot glued them to the bunnies.
I  use Faber-Castell inks and paints that I have, they can be any brand.
The clouds I cut from batting.

The umbrellas are fabric I cut with wonder-under to hold the shape.

I think the bunnies are so cute

The daffodils I cut from the Silhouette Cameo program

I painted the raindrops on

This bulletin board was for the spring of 2013 since St. Patrick's Day and Easter were all in the same month I combined them both. I hand painted everything.

I paint the bulletin boards in my spare bedroom and create a huge mess while creating these works of art. The paint comes right up off the floors with GreenWorks You can see all the supplies I have out to use.
I even added glitter paint to the rainbow

The bunnies were so cute, I even added a real silk bow for their little bunny necks
This one I did from inspiration from a class I took from Juliette Crane the How to Paint an Owl 1 which was so much fun I just had to go big with this one.....these bulletin boards are 10x4 feet and I have to tape the two rolls of paper together to make it wide enough. I adore Juliette Cranes owls.
Owl bet you reach your goals for 2013
Made for the January 2013 board
This one was for February 2013

Love how this heart turned out

This  whale bulletin board was for Valentine's Day 2014

There is a Whale of LOVE here

A lot of fun this one was...I used a whole jar of Golden fluorescent Pink

The whale turned out great
The waves I stippled on the water

This bulletin board was made for the 5th Grade Graduates last year I used the Cricut to cut all the hats out the panda was hand painted, including the border 

the pandas are mascot

We had over 50+ grads
I used red Bazzill paper to cut the hats on  the Cricut

Congrats to our Grads


This one I did for January of 2012 I cut the banner out of the Silhouette Cameo and hand painted the panda

I used a really old stencil and Pan Pastels to paint the bamboo on

This one turned out so sweet I really love the banner
Happy New Year the banner says

This is the holiday of 2012
I first painted the white sponge look on the background

then painted all the cheerful monsters

painted glitter on them too

A wip here
Happy Holidays

The background also has huge glitter flakes "snow"

So cute

the garland is the Tim Holtz

All the boards are hand painted and I do this on the floor I recruit some help when I can

Bruce does good at helping fill in

Always getting the supplies ready

This was the holiday bulletin board more like a winter one
for 2013 December and January 2104
I used an EK Success snowflake punch
The Aleene's snow paint for the coats

I hand painted all the children
The winter has been cold in fact we have more snow than usual and the boys were even out of school today from the snow storm "Titan"

I used a wash on the back to make the pale blue color

I liked how they turned out

I love making trees
Again Pan Pastels and Faber-Castell pens

Holiday 2013

This was October 2013 which really is for the fall

I love fall time too and sunflowers are one of my favorites

Again a tree
Happy Fall which was painted on with chalkboard paint and sprayed with workable fixative

Everyone always loves the fall boards

Again another fall board this scarecrow was from October 2012

I used a real Prima flower and cut letters from the Cricut
this fall board was from 2011 again trees and I cut pumpkins from the Cricut Imagine
leaves from the Silhouette and Cricut

 The owl was cut from the Cricut Imagine
This one was for a play for Thanksgiving. 
You can see it hanging on the curtain on the stage for the Thanksgiving play.  

This bulletin board I just finished for spring time this year
of course I had Bruce make this cute pom pom using this tutorial

I love the painting bunny

 Here I am doing my Vanna pose as our principal had me do.....this board is 10x4 and I paint it on the floor in my spare room
They just are too cute.

again the spring bulletin board
Here are all five of the bunnies
Fun Fun fun!!!!
There were others but I was unable to find the pics but I don't think I missed but one or two.
It has been a great artful ride on the bulletin boards which I am so glad they have allowed me to share.
I hope you can find some inspiration from the past three school years of bulletin boards. Thanks for looking!!!!
Have a great week! I should be back tomorrow with my next class...I just completed....week four!
Cyber Hugs,
Dawn Gallop
