Just For Fun Challenge - Words

Von set the challenge at Just For Fun to take inspiration from Words. As I had been making a bookmark for the Stampotique challenge I thought I would create another bookmark for Just For Fun. I used Eric, distress inks, and dictionary pages. On one side I stamped Eric directly onto a dictionary page coloured with distress inks and then stuck that to a piece of green tissue paper. I coloured him with aqua pro markers andpaper pieced some books for him. On the other side I highlighted the words "who said boys do not read books" from the dictionary definitions and stamped Eric over the definitions onto a piece of Lost and Found paper with Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick distress inks. I also created another  quick book using Smushasha from Stampotique. I am trying out a new Accelerated Reading Programme with my first year class (year 7/8) and am busy making bookmarks to encourage them to read. I've laminated them all to protect them.
