A friend of mine gave me a really great canvas album from Maya Road over the summer. I have been secretly eyeing it, waiting for just the right project. I decided to take it from album form to banner form and yesterday I had a day full of artsy fun making it.
First things first – I laid it out and sprayed it with a light amount of Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and let it dry. Then I went back and slowly started adding in other colors – primarily Bubblegum Pink – along with masks to create some great, delicate shapes on my banner.
I tied all of the pieces together using wired thread for added support. Then I tied various bits of fabric and ribbon to the links.
Next I set about to decorate each banner differently, but with common elements throughout the entire piece – coordinating colors, fabric, bling, etc…
I had the most fun, taking pieces and making them more – adding bling buttons, stick pins, tulle, etc… to a base flower and just jazzing them up. I loved this project and it was a great creative experiment!
When it was all done, I was in love and ended up hanging it up in my recently renovated furnace room work area…
Just wanted to share! Happy Monday!
