ETA: The banner was made using the tutorial from Flutter by atomicbutterfly here. Thank you so much Kelly Lunceford. I know I will be making many more.
Welcome to my blog. How have you all been? I am finally back in action. I know, what has been wrong with me. I kept making trips to the stores trying to find supplies for this banner, mainly paint and chipboard letters. Turns out there isn't a craft store, that I know of, in Rapid City that carries Making Memories paint (is it only sold online?). Also, silly me forgot that I had bought a whole box full of chipboard EVERYTHING from creative memories a LONG time ago. So I bought some chipboard letters for no good reason. I guess I get to make another banner though :D
I took several pictures to show you what it really looks like. I used paper from Hobby Lobby "The Paper Studio". I just love the vintage feel of all the paper patterns. The letters were painted with acrylic pain and since I didn't have glitter I used embossing powder. After the glue dried I decided to see how it would work if I did emboss the powder (I didn't actually intend on doing that since I wasn't sure how it was to affect the paint). I love hwo it turned out. The cameo is a button I found at Michael's a long time ago.
I love this one because of the kraft butterfly. My older sister cut this butterfly out for me using her silhouette. Man, I cannot wait to have one of my own.
This is to show off all the glitter madness. I just love it. Not too much glitter but just enough to make it fun and exciting.
I hope you all have fun and exciting plans for the weekend. We are actually going to be jammed back with activities all week.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
