my blog may be taking a new low with this, but i have to post it cause it's awesome. i think i've decided to go into the bulletin board decorating business. behold! my very first bulletin board! i was privileged enough to get to do the bulletin board in the main office at the school i work at. i spent a very long hand-drawing and cutting out all of the components to my special bulletin board. i couldn't have been happier doing arts and crafts a few days instead of the regular boring work. when i was in elementary school, i absolutely remember being mesmerized by anything visually engrossing around the school and i still get faint images in my head of the ones that really stood out to me. i may not quite remember them now, but i know they had an impact on me at the time. it may sound lame, but it makes me hopeful to have the same kind of impact on the kids with my bulletin board.
have no fear, i actually have a story to go along with this. (although the "creative" pictures are the extent of my normal themes of art and disabilities.)
who remembers the children's book the berenstain bears and the spooky old tree by stan and jan berenstain? look it up if you don't.
the best part is the 3-D effects that each of the bears are holding: one with a flashlight, one with a stick, one with a rope!
the "water" was clear plasticy paper. how clever! with 3D splashes
3D crow and banner!
and 3D bats!
now for my story:
