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!
