DT post for Crafty Calendar - Back to School

Hi everyone! Here's this month's challenge for Crafty Calendar - Back to School.
Our sponsors this month are

The DT had some lovely images to work with - I chose Bookworm.
I printed the image a couple of times, coloured using watercolour paints, cut ou the whole image of one & the pile of books from the other.
I found the dictionary parts I wanted & edged then with a little DI then placed them onto my backing paper.
The 'blackboard' is made from a blackboard sticker which I stuck onto white card the cut around leaving a small border. I made the easel from some white card & coloured it with DI.
Placed the bookworm onto the card, then placed the blackboard & pile of books using foam tape for a bit of dimension.
Pop over to the Crafty Calendar Blog & take a look at the other makes by the DT. The challenge runs all month so you have plenty of time to get your projects in! Hope to see you there.
