|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 HEREand 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
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 was for February 2013
This whale bulletin board was for Valentine's Day 2014
There is a Whale of LOVE here
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
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
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
The background also has huge glitter flakes "snow"
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
for 2013 December and January 2104
The Aleene's snow paint for the coats
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
Again Pan Pastels and Faber-Castell pens
This was October 2013 which really is for the fall
I love fall time too and sunflowers are one of my favorites
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
of course I had Bruce make this cute pom pom using this tutorial
I love the painting bunny
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!
