It’s not just children who dread the end of the summer break, teachers do too! So it was a bit of a shock to be up early this morning ready for the first morning back. The children still have a couple of days off but teachers and teaching assistants were back today, preparing for the the new classes and updating First Aid Training! With the start of September and the new academic year there are a number of challenges with the back to school theme, I could hardly let that go by!
I printed out my two papers and the image. I coloured the image with Copic pens then cut it out along with a larger sized mat from one of the papers using the scalloped oval dies. I cut a piece of the second paper big enough to cover the front of the card with a small border around it then cut a tag from the waste with the tag die and wrote ‘Staffroom’ on it. Finally I mounted the image onto the mat and the whole topper to the card, placing the tag at the bottom using foam pads.
Although this image is not a traditional school image it did remind me of a colleague at school who puts up a lot of the displays and has very curly hair!
Thank you for visiting. Take care.
