How is it that Thanksgiving is next week? This month has just flown by! I've been trying to get myself organized and de-clutter. It's not going well LOL, but I'm still chugging along. I think I need to make a list and just focus on one room, or one project and maybe It will help me to be more productive.
I did mange to create another of the DIY home decor project I had on my to-do list for Thanksgiving. I used items from my Nov. Counterfeit kit to create this little banner. I adhered patterned paper using gel medium to some chipboard banner pieces. It was a very messy process, and I discovered half way through this project that liquid matte medium would have worked just as well! After they dried I used a sanding block to distress the surface of each banner piece a little bit.
I pulled some random chipboard alphabet pieces from my stash. I believe most are from Making Memories & Maya Road, I've had them forever! I applied Wild Honey distress paint to them, allowed them to dry, and then added some highlights using Vintage Photo Distress ink and my inking tool. I also applied Vintage Photo distress ink to the banner pieces & leaves. I attached mini gold brads to the leaves, adhered them with foam tape and added buttons & scrappers floss to accent the banner pieces.
I think I'm going to save the rest of my Thanksgiving projects for next year and get a head start on Christmas. I just might finish a few to enjoy most of the month of December.
Hope you all are well! Thanks for stopping by today!
