My friend recently moved into a new home and will begin organizing a basement craft room soon. I wanted to make a decoration for her walls and decided to do the CREATE Banner.
I inked the scalloped background pieces around the edges. I prefer ink to paint if I want a more rustic look with the texture of the chipboard more prominent.
I papered the front panels, all nice straight lines so easy to trace and cut the paper.
I inked the letters the same color as the background pieces.
I also inked up some of the Owl Elements and colored in the branches and leaves with a marker.
I attached the owls above the letters on the banner pieces.
Using my silent setter I made a small hole at the top corner of each piece.
I used twine to attach the pieces. Here it is all ready to go to my friend.
Here is a closer view of two of the finished panels.
