Dig Into Reading – Summer Reading 2013

This years Summer Reading Theme at the Bridgeview Public Library’s Youth Services department is “Dig Into Reading.” Here is a bulletin board I made focusing on dinosaurs and dinosaur bones.

As with many of my crafting projects this one started out with an idea of using many layers of colored paper and was quickly dismissed for tempera paint. My volcano, Brachiosaurus and Triceratops were drawn on separate sheets of paper and added to the painted background later. A little tissue paper and some Ellison dye cut pterodactyl’s later (to cover holes and mistakes) we have our prehistoric scene.
