Happy Monday morning!
Okay, I know Day 5: of Five Days, Five Haunting Halloween Projects is a little late in posting. However, I had to wait until it was posted on the fabulous My Mind's Eye Blog.
"Bewitched Halloween Banner"
This banner was created with My Mind's Eye Haunted Collection. I told you it was one of my faves this year!
One of my favorite projects, is creating a banner. I love adding handmade details to my decor. I love the added texture, and character it can give to the holidays! (already working on a Christmas one, too!)
details of each individual panel:
Now, this banner does have a little bit of this & that. I included some journaling tags from Maya Road, and used some of my Quickutz Halloween dies! Of course, there is a whole lot of stamping, and inking throughout!
The stamped bats in the corner, are from an older SEI Halloween Collection. One of my favorites go to techniques, is stamping! I do have quite a good inventory, but if you invest in only a few, you will reach for them time after time. They add so much to a project, and are easy way to "embellish, without breaking the bank!
While I was kiting for this banner I found my new favorite black ink:
American Crafts Pigment Black Ink
It is such a deep, and rich color! I purchased this ink a few weeks ago, and brought it to my class. I wish I had opened it earlier! Everyone loved it! When you first use this ink pad, it will be very juicy. Stamp your image, and set aside to dry for a few seconds. Trust me, it is worth the wait!
This spooky tree is my favorite. It is also from Quickutz.
Project would not be complete without paper roses!
I know, I used ALOT of brads!! I was not sure the direction this panel was taking, but I loved the end result. Adds a bit of eeriness to the project, don't you think?
The beautiful flocked artwork on the papers, made planning the foundation easy! I tied the panels together with black string, and black tulle! Banners are the perfect finishing details to your holiday decor. A small canvas with lots of possibilities!
I hope you enjoyed my Halloween Banner! Thank you for visiting today, and I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!
