Love is in the Air...
If you have never tried creating banners you are in for a real treat. BoBunny's "Head over Heels" collection is perfect ensemble of beautiful pattern papers, buttons and die cuts and chipboard that allow you to layer your project in a perfectly coordinated way.
I used the Strawberry Double Dot Papers as my backing and a chipboard banner shape for a sturdy base. I trimmed around the edges with a scalloped deco edge scissor.
The front of the banner was layered alternating "Head over Heels and Prince Charming"
I piled on the embellishments- buttons, noteworthy die cuts, blossoms and pieces from the 12 x 12 chipboard...
I used some cheesecloth and eyelash yarn for shabby chic touches. After my banner was decorated I used a mask and some modeling paste for added interest!
Here are a few close ups!
And finished it off with a hand dyed length of seam binding.
