This week school started for me--sort of. Since I teach, I spent the week readying my room, working with colleagues, and attending training. I am looking forward to teaching my students this year. It will be fun.
I also spent the week finishing up a few assignments, most of which I can't share yet, so I thought I'd share this one (click on the image to see it larger):
After my son "messed with" a bee last year and was stung, he is now pathologically afraid of them, a problem considering how many gardens I have around my house. This page is a bit of encouragement for him to be brave, and not to "mess" with them any more. I used Studio Calico's August kit Boardwalk for this.
I dipped into my Basic Grey Bloomers supply for the page. Love love love them.
Pardon the punny title.
I also dipped into an older kit for the bee stamp, which I stamped, embossed, colored and blended with watercolor pencils, cut out, and adhered with dimensional adhesive. I also hand drew the flight line and stitched it.
This layout is a bit of a farewell to summer. Time to shift from jewel tones into burnt tones on my scrapbook pages.
