First of all I want to say thanks to everyone who has visited my blog this week. I enjoy seeing you visit. If you like what you see, please leave a comment or follow me!
Can I just say before I zoom in close and show you all the details on this banner how excited I am about it. I am thrilled at how it turned out. I loved working on it and planning on sharing with you all. I won’t make you wait any more. Can you tell how excited I am about this. It’s a gift for my beautiful daughter in law and I can’t wait to give it to her.
Do you think she’ll like it? Wait, I give you a close up of the first panel.
You know what I’ve learned about paper art? It’s all about dimension! The more--the better! I really meant to put the shadow behind this tree, but somehow I forgot. Duh! The tree was cut from Stretch Your Imagination at about 3 1/2 and the tags are cut from A Child’s Year at 4 with a shadow. I inked the edges with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink/Walnut. I sanded the edges of the Coredinations ( Love that paper) and used a brown Zig writer to do the faux stitching. The extra leaves are from Designer’s Calender at 1”, but more about those later.
The second tag:
And a side view:
I love this tag. I used the font from Gypsy Font Monogram feature and cut it at 3”. The apples and basket are from Doodlecharms. The basket is 3” and the apples 1”. I inked and chalked the basket after I cuttlebugged it with the Distressed Stripes folder. The letter is faux stitched and there’s a lot of pop dotting going on—a lot!
Oh, and I strung this banner with twine and a button. Fun!
The pumpkins are from Stretch Your Imagination cut at various sizes. I used my brown Zig pen to put in the detail and then chalked them to give them depth. Then POP DOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this banner! Have I said this? Oh, yea. I did.
Yes, it’s wheat from My World and I cut about 10 of them, detailed them with my Zig writer, chalked them and then . . out came the pop dots.
There are those leaves again and that basket. I detailed the leaves with the Zig writer, chalked the leaves to make them look more like real fall leaves and to give them lots of dimension and pop dotted a bunch. I also added brads to add authenticity to the basket.
Oh, and that patterned paper in the background of all the tags, it’s from a fall DCWV stack from a lot of years ago. I have so much paper I’ve never used!! I am working on that.
There you go. Day 3 of Banner week. How am I doing? Leave a comment if you like the work. I love to read them.
