I thought I should show before photos of all my girls. I stopped by Kinko's and made a few color copies of two of the girls. I thought I would try out different techniques on the same girl and see what happens. I have also started working on my house chunky book project and am happy with the way it is going so far. I will be excited to share them when I have made a little more progress.
Finally, after 3 days of sorting, I got to the bottom of the collage bag that Kelly donated to the studio at school. I was sorting all the goodies into focal points, background paper, and other embelishments. This sorting makes it much easier for little hand to find what they are looking for. As I was sorting I kept thinking I'd have to start journaling at school with so many iresistable paper choices! I'll keep you posted on what the kids make with them. Also, I can't even tell you how many of my 4th and 5th grades who have seen these portraits have said, "Can you do them with us too?" That's the part of my job that I love.
