Are you getting your FALL on? We are sooo enjoying the cooling down from the high summer temps here in Oklahoma. The weekend weather was brisk and we even had the pleasure of some rain. I'm loving it and so does the parched land here in the Red Earth State.
A few days ago I shared with you my plans of transforming some heavy-duty paper tags (found at TJMaxx) into a sweet message geared at celebrating God's Bounty. Since I'm not really a paper-crafter I wanted to keep the design simple. I opted to reproduce the back of an old cabinet photo and use it as the framework for a new Fall Banner. A few capital letters (Georgia Font) were chosen for the center and spell out the word
Using my computer (PhotoShop) I stretched out the original photo frame to better fit inside the tags pre-set size (previously painted and lightly distressed). Then the individual letters were added before being printed out in a sepia ink on a soft white ground of heavy card stock paper.
After cutting and gluing the letters onto the front of the tags I tied them onto gimp cording (measured to fit) with rayon ribbon/tape. They easily slide on the coring making placement simple and fast!
I skipped using any glitter on this project! I'm loving the fresh and uncomplicated look of the Banner across our fireplace screen!
Reworked my Coffee Table Basket this year using shreds from a vintage dictionary that was literally falling apart.... White pumpkins...white fruit...grapes...yummmmmmmmmmmm....
Here's a little thought that may speak to you today... I'm always in need of this timely reminder~
"WHEN YOU ARE FULL OF YOURSELF, GOD CAN'T FILL YOU!"
Certainly something to think about as we enter into another Harvest Season.
Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments last week. I'm doing better.
Love to you...
