Spring Banner

This week our challenge here at Creative Inspirations Paint is "SPRING".  I've never made a banner before so I thought I would make one for my craft room.

I used crepe paper to make the ruffle at the top and then sewed it and the rick rack onto the pennant.  The crepe paper and doily were painted with CIP "Fairy Dust".

The letters were painted with white acrylic paint and then painted with CIP "Winter Frost".  I then added some extra bling with Diamond Dust.

Those bright colors have certainly brought some cheer into my craft room which is sorely needed since we have had a week of dark, rainy days.

Make sure to check out the other DT's spring creations! I'm sure you'll find lots of shimmery inspiration for your spring projects.
