Fall Banner

I LOVE making framed art.  Now really…I think it is just more fun than ANYTHING!!  (okay…cards first….especially CAS ones…then framed art!)  I have this whole collection of frames I have picked up over the years in so many different sizes and colors.  This was one of the frames from my collection.  I’m not going to go into a lot of details on this but just some general directions.

Basically I used the Howlstooth and Scaringbones dsp as the inspiration for the colors on my piece and that was what I used for my ‘banners’ (and the bottom left grey/vanilla polka dotted panel).  The More Mustard background used the leaves from Autumn Accents Die in More Mustard to create a texture.  I used the Large Scallop Edgelit and some of the Grey/Black striped satin ribbon on the base.  The letters are Basic Black that I layered onto cardboard then cut out with the Typeset Alphabet dies.  The decorations were leaves cut from More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Basic Grey and Champagne Glimmer paper.  The flowers are Champagne Glimmer Boho Blossom Punch with a Basic Black brad in the center.  The banner is strung together with a piece of Very Vanilla 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon.  Oh and of course, lots and lots and lots of dimensionals.
