Autumn Banners

Autumn Banners are hanging in a few more homes after a wonderful class last night.

A great group of ladies made it out during this zany first week Back to School to create their own Thankful banners. Between sponging, scrunching and spritzing their leaves into pieces of art to add to the canvas and arranging  how to lay out their buttons, each gal put together a beautiful and unique banner for their home!

I had a couple things well thought out ahead of time, and a couple things that could have been laid out before they started coming...
thanks to Vicki who diligently worked the Big Shot to crank out the multitude of leaves needed by everyone to start their sponging! : D
I'll be doing that later this afternoon, for tomorrow's class. As well as running a few sheets through the Rosette die ready for turning into these little centrepieces.
I'm happy that I had the option of Crushed Curry for the class. When I was creating, I didn't have the refill yet (?!) but I'm glad, sort of, since I'm not sure if I'd have pulled in the Cajun Craze if I'd have had the yellow when I reached for it as my first choice...

Advice to those spraying for the first time, use a light hand.The canvas feathers the lines a bit. Let it dry, slightly, at least, before spritzing a bit more if you want a bit more colour (probably better to add more re-inker to the bottle than to over-spray).
I think you'll be surprised, and pleased when you 'unveil' the canvas by lifting the screen and see how beautiful they are. (for me, every time was a put-a-smile-on-my-face discovery when I took away the blue mask!)

I LOVE these banners and I'm hoping we keep them into the Spring ~ so many possibilities!!!
