My 'CREATE' Banner

This is a project I worked on this week.
It is a banner for my 'creation room', as my DH calls it.;-)
Saw one somewhere a long bit ago and liked it.
Think they used larger vintage photo mats.
I just used some I found at the local Dollar Tree.
Antiqued them with a mix of paint and tan dye.

Used scrapbook papers, stickers and assorted old items glued on.

Printed the large letters off pc.

Tore the papers to give them an aged look.

This old button pack I found in a drawer.
Left the sale tag on it from Murphy's.
They are no longer in business in our area.

Tried to get a shot to show the sparkle I added.;-)
Everyone needs a bit of sparkle in their days!
It is hanging above the windows for now.
Have another piece of furniture to paint an move in.
Think this may go in different spot then.
Was fun to play with paper and glue for a bit!

Thanks for dropping by!!!

  7. How clever Lola, I love how it turned out. I have wooden letters that spell out "create", they've been in my closet for almost 2 years now. Maybe it's time to finish them and get them on the wall!

  8. Lola, I love this. If I could slow down, I want to re-do my sewing room and paint. What a great idea for a banner. Stay warm.
