Create Home Decor Banners with Leaky Shed Studio

Hi it's me  Veronica also known as Kitsnbitscraps.  Today is my first post here on the Leaky Shed Studio Blog and I am so excited  to be a part of this fabulous company and a Design Team member.

A little bit about me, I LOVE chipboard!  Leaky Shed Studio has so many to choose from.  I know that you will find what you need - no matter the theme of your layout, card, tag or album.  Speaking of albums, I love to make them but I have been asked numerous times to make some layouts and other altered items.  So for today I am sharing this pretty banner with my favorite inspiring words - Create!

I used the Pennant Banner along with the Fancy Lower Case Alphabets.

Below are some step-out photos of my process in creating this pretty banner.  Banner's are easy and so fun to make - they make G R E A T gifts.  I just made two for a wedding and a bride's luncheon.

First ... I painted my chipboard using regular acrylic black paint

Then I covered the pennants with pretty paper ...

I wanted the ruffle chipboard to be different so I added some black glass glitter with glue ...

Turned out chunky - I like chunky and bonus its glittery.  Next I used my lower case alphas and painted them white
And repeat .... more glitter
I used alcohol inks on the "garden butterfly" and the "Butterfly on Garden Sprig" to color in the chipboard.  I also added a touch of acrylic paint for highlights.  Then I embossed the pieces with clear embossing power.  So pretty ...
I enjoyed sharing with you today, and I have some layouts planned for the coming months.  I hope you enjoyed my pennant banner; thank you for stopping by.
