Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! This new month of September 2020 for A Place To Start blog has a broad theme of children. Crafting projects that are new showcasing images of children, children's interests like games, toys, dolls, video games, etc. can be used. I decided to create a back to school bookmark for a nephew.
I'm sure as a high school sophomore he doesn't consider himself a child but as my youngest nephew this will work and back to school is time appropriate in the northern hemisphere as our summer season is starting to fade away. We live in the same state but several hours apart. His school is doing limited remote learning just on Mondays and he's in school the rest of the weekdays.
This week I just started subbing for a Pre-K teacher on maternity leave and her district has a different approach to the Pandemic remote or not remote learning. This district is having 3 hours of in-school learning each day with 2 hours of remote learning required in the afternoon (or it could be evening). If all goes well within the region, they are hoping to increase to 5 hours of daily instruction in October with limited remote learning options in the afternoon/evening. And then in November or hopefully no later than January to get to full days. We shall see what happens with that. OK. Enough about Covid-19!!!!
APTS blog's Children's theme challenge starts Monday September 7 at midnight 12 am EST.

e. I will personalize the bookmark with my nephew's name in the area to the left of the raider image
f. the raider image is free clip art found online; I printed it on kraft paper and then added blue acrylic paint with a dry sponge dauber to give a theatrical look of an old soldier stepping out of time and pointing to us. Colored pencils were used to add color to the soldier: wedge blue, aqua blue, gray, marigold, beige for skin, cocoa brown for his hair...
