Breezy Bulletin Board idea

Looks like Punxsutawney Phil may have been wrong! The winds are blowing but the temperature is a lot milder than it normally is at the beginning of March. Anyway, it made me think of hanging my own laundry out in the breezy sunshine. So here is a fun bulletin board idea for March.

I used  recycled paper grocery bags for the wooden wash tub, opening up one and drawing the tub on the plain side. I added the wood grain with black marker and brown dye-based ink which I swiped right on the paper from the ink pad.. Then I drew the black bands around the tub with marker. You can’t see it here, but I added some black brads for texture. The “water” is red pigment ink blotted on the  paper and filled in with  red marker. I added a little clear embossing powder to give it a wet look.

The bubbles were fun to make with vellum paper and a bit of clear embossing powder to give them a wet look too. On the  right, the washboard is actually folded with alternating mountain and valley folds – again for texture with silver crayon marking each valley fold to make it more visible. I put the words, “tough love” on the top of the washboard.The grass and clothes are made from construction paper.

The verse is printed on the clouds using letters printed from my Cricut Jubilee cartridge, but you could print them or stencil them in by hand.On the front of the detergent box it says, “Blood of Jesus – extra strength,”. and on the side of the box, the fine print reads, “Cleans all kinds of sin. For all stubborn sins, apply as often as needed.”

Happy March!
