Books and Banners

WOW!! It's been a while since I've been on. I have been into reading A LOT!!!! lately lol. I got a NOOK a while back and I can't pull myself away from it. I am currently reading The Mercy ThompsonSeries. It is in the supernatural mix. The werewolves and all. Nice entertaining read. What is everyone into reading right now? I may need new reading material down the road :) Another draw back to the NOOK......How easy it is to buy books ;) I have enough to last me a while.

I have been in an altered mode on the art front lately. Jenn who owns ScrapGal has now opened a Store front. 68 North Main in Cedar City Utah...I made her this banner to put up in the store. I love the bright colors and the contrast of the black and white ribbon. And the packaging from Primas small canvas tabs were the perfect size to backdrop the title. The canvas squares are by Canvas Corp. I used Lime Twist Glimmer Mist on the canvas. I used Little Yellow Bicycle's paper doilies to add depth to the banner they were also altered with glimmer mist. Sunshine and Flower Power. I crocheted the flowers and used Prima to finish it off. TFL :)

Also I wanted to note. I have started putting a watermark on my pictures and projects. PLEASE PLEASE do not be discouraged to use projects on here as inspiration. That is the reason I post a blog, to share ideas and techniques with all of you. :) I put the labels on more for photo protection than anything.
