I'm hosting another banner swap on Paper Traders. This one is for Winter and is the last in a series of four banners - one for each season. It has been a lot of fun having these hang in my studio throughout the year... I think they're just so pretty!
Below is a close-up of my banner, showing the detail of one pennant. (Sorry for the grainy cell phone photos.) The blue Plasticfoil background paper was a fabulous garage sale find earlier this year - I love how it looks frosty. I added some extra shine to the chipboard letters by painting over them with some Gleams and then misting them with Starburst Stains. I added some shiny metallic touches by threading gold cord through the lace and adding some glitter glue embellishments.
I think the end result is gorgeous, if I do say so myself =)
