Create Banner

I made this banner for a friend's birthday. Since it's something to hang in her scrap room, I made it in colors that match her room, rather than fluffy pinks and fairies that would match mine.

I started with a Maya Road canvas album that I embellished with burlap, cardboard scallops, painted alphas, and paper flowers.

Using the pre-made banner pieces allowed me to spend time on the embellishing instead of cutting and stitching canvas.

I used a set of alphas that have a great pattern, but the color scheme wasn't right.So, I painted them red. You can still see the pattern through the paint, but not the colors.

I added a scalloped piece of cardboard that I further distressed and added paint, a denim-pattern scalloped circle, and navy seam binding to tie it all together.

How fabulous! Your friend must be thrilled! Love the mixed-media on here. The canvas and burlap mixed with the cardboard is fantastic. Really love the rolled flowers, too.
