Happy Tuesday everyone!  I admit it, I am totally addicted to making these art banners.  I love that they let me make art like I would on a tag in a project that is easy to display.  I also love they are letting me explore using more “paper” techniques on fabric.  For non banner makers, the designs and ideas are easy to adapt to cards and tags.  This week I wanted to experiment with using Ranger Texture Paste on fabric.  I was so thrilled that it worked and love the way the banner turned out!

Quotes for Art | September 14

Quotes for Art | It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will. L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Quotes and great phrases often inspire my art. Sometimes the quote comes first, and sometimes it is the art that puts me on a search for just the right words.
