I am finally posting after a brief hiatus. Over the past several months I have been working on a major financial transaction at work. Crafting has been my solace but after a non-stop day on my computer I could not bring myself to create a post. I needed less screen time and more paper and ink time. I hope I did not lose too many of you.
When I saw the Freshly Made Sketch Design Team Call I knew it was time to jump back onto my blog. I was on the Pals Design Team for several years and really miss the weekly responsibility to post. (Crazy right?) I was also a designer for Mary Fish for a year and loved that as well. I really want to say Pick me, Pick me!
Let’s get to my project.
Here is the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches:
I used the slat design as the inspiration for my banner flags. And then decided to go with a Valentines theme rather than a Christmas theme for the shape.
The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up! Ribbon of Courage stamp set. The DSP for the banner flags is retired. The Hearts are from the SU Sweet & Sassy Framelit Dies.
You may see the banners are mounted on Smoky Slate card stock. The first version of this card was on Smoky Slate card stock that I had spritzed with Shimmer Paint and Alcohol. While the shimmer was stunning I could not pick it up in the photo sooo I snipped the center piece and remounted it on Thick Whisper White card stock. Honestly I like it better and the Smoky Slate (with the shimmer) adds a great design element.
Nothing is ever a disaster when designing; it just means you need to keep designing!
It is great to be sharing my creativity with you again. I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for stopping by.
