My bulletin board for this year is done. We’re just starting to have the eighth graders pic a “Bible verse of the year”, but we forgot to have them do it at the end of last year, so we don’t know what it is yet. So I used the verse for Lutheran Schools Week. – Colossians 1:15-20. It’s about how Jesus is in all things, so I wanted to represent that somehow.
I used pictures from magazines, but the only ones I had available were art magazine pictures. It was hard to get a variety of things. If I had more magazines, I think I would have done smaller pictures.
If I did it again, I might make the top and bottom of the mouth similar colors. I think the dark/light makes it harder to see the cutout shapes. But I’ll leave it the way it is. Too many times I have messed with something to make it “better”, and it ends up wrecked.
Dang. That is EXCELLENT! Are you posting these to the LuthEd Facebook page? You would have lots and lots of people copy you. (Which would secretly make me angry. Do your own thinking, people.)
Your bulletin boards never disappoint. They are always artistically sound and clever, IMHO. At first glance the magazine cutout above the mouth reminded me of a hard shelled crab so I smiled inside thinking you’d incorporated some Baltimore flavor there. Then I realized I was mistaken – but the yellow ducky made me smile, too, so it’s all good. Nicely done.
