Finished banner measures 2 ft wide. Hang on a mantle or shelf to accent your holiday decor. I’ll be hanging mine in the shop…so stop by and take a look at the completed banner. You can leave your deposit and save your spot by calling me at 734-268-1109 during regular business hours. Please do not leave deposit information in a message. Cost for the class is $25
I’ve listed a limited number of kits in the Etsy shop as well for those who want to create the banner but can’t make the class. All pieces to complete the kit will be pre-cut and ready to assemble. Many elements will be Stickled and glittered and inked for detail. Click the link to check out the details.
I’ve added loads of pretty ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and beautiful vintage images from Ephemera’s Vintage Garden.
I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
I‘m playing paper today to chase the clouds away. Hoping for Spring to get here soon I’ve created two brighter and cheerier cards.
I selected a nice stripe from my Graphic 45 scrap and salvage box and layered on a lovely vintage image from Graphics Fairy. Marie Antoinette is so beautiful : ) I gave this card a nice craft paper border to anchor the light colors.
I punched and gathered a border and added individually cut out tiny flowers from the Graphic 45 scrap box. To the center of each flower I added a dab of Liquid Pearls. I also inked it well using Distress Inks.
I really love this darling image from Graphics Fairy of the bunny and chicks. Don’t ya just want to climb right into that picture and hear them little chicks peeping and smell the blooms from the tree in the background. The paper I choose for this card is from Paper Loft. The small button card is from Crate.
This lovely little bloom is separate flowers cut from the same sheet of scrap Graphic 45 paper…this time I did dry brush it just a bit to bring the intensity of the color down. I layered and curled several flowers and gave it a pearly accent center.
Just my luck…I found a small scrap of paper that looks just like burlap! It looks like it has a lot of texture. I used it to make a sweet little banner and topped it off with a string of pearls. A creamy ribbon and bow are the final accents.
Okay…now I have my Spring projects started….all I need is for it to be 85 and sunny : )
I started my day poking around in the stock boxes from the shop in hopes of finding the cord to my sewing machine. Apparently this is to be a lost cause. I did however find a box of old artificial flowers. I decided to try some techniques for altering them. I didn’t care for them too much anymore….so if they got ruined in the pursuit of art all I was loosing was a little time. I am THRILLED with how it turned out : )
↓↓Before and After↓↓
No I am not playing a trick on you…this was the same flower!!! Not to say that yellow roses aren’t nice and all. LOL I like the after a whole lot better : ) And are you noticing that there are two flowers??? You guessed it…I will be giving this one a makeover too!
So I also finished a couple of cards to share with you.
There’s like 5 different Distress Ink colors there haha. Once I got started it was hard to stop. I tucked this tag made with papers from My Minds Eye behind a glittery frame and layered it on a strip of typography from Jenni Bowlin Mercantile.
But….I did not find the cord to my sewing machine. Dang. Guess I’ll look again tomorrow. I might even find some more treasures to create with for my next post.
