Skool's up

Do you know Lizzy has so many images you can use for back to school, I just had to do a "proper" one :)

Take a look at Oddball Art on Esty - you can use my DT code DTANDREA10 to get yourself 10% off at checkout!

For this particular piece of inspiration I've used image 109.  I've used ProMarkers to colour her then fussy cut all the different bits out (took me a while).

I've created a typical physics themed sentiment using some glitter sticker letters.

The background is some back card stock and some design papers from Lili of the Valley mounted on top. I picked this particular one because it's got an almost graffiti style to it on what looks like some lined paper.

The sign was made from a chipboard shape which I got from Hobbycraft and coloured black.  I then used some white glitter letters to make the "skool" sign.  On the sign are a couple of small brown self adhesive gems to give the impression of a hinged sign.
Finally the chalkboard sign was added - I also found these in Hobbycraft

Our kids seem to be going back late this year in Yorkshire don't know about anyone elses!

Before I forget to mention Lizzy is also giving some freebies out on the Oddball Art Facebook group all you have to do is join to find them :)

Hope I've given you a little more inspiration for our current challenge at Oddball Art - Back to School.
