Dream a Little Dream

Today is Saturday, the day before Easter, and I have had the whole day to piddle in my craft room. It is beautiful outside, and my children are playing with their neighborhood friends...the sun was streaming in my craft room I decided to make a little sumpin sumpin!

My Dream banner is made from burlap scraps, with hand painted cream and black design.

I cut the triangle shapes from the burlap. Then used off white craft paint, with a dry brush technique, as a base. I have a few new stamps from the dollar bin at Michael's Craft store, cute little banners...and a scroll design, so I stamped those on, but they were blurry, so I accented them with a fine paint brush with black craft paint.

I freehand painted the letters in black, and added shadowing with my gray Copic. I hand stitched black hemp to the top of each banner piece to string them together. I didn't want to take a chance on the burlap unraveling too much if I tried to string through holes, so I opted for no holes. I really like the effect of the back stitching across the top.

 Also, note my new chicken wire frame!
I made these for Christmas for some of my family members, and finally got around to finishing mine! I love it, the Dream banner looks just perfect hanging from it! 

Well, everyone have a Hoppy Easter!
