Hello Spooky Friends!
Kat again! Bringing you my third project using the “Magical and Mischievous” collection. It’s been soo much fun playing with this super cute collection and I’m sad my short residency has come to an end, BUT I’ve had so much fun with you all! Ok ok enough chatter! Lol! Are you ready?! (*que drumroll) for my final project I decided to create a banner!
OMG! I adore how it turned out! Squuuuueeeeee isn’t it the cutest?! I seriously went ham with the ephemera, but I just love how it looks! For each pendant I created a little cluster of Pastelloween heaven.
I used chipboard as the base of my pendants to create a strong and sturdy surface. I cut out pendants from each of the papers from the collection and sewed around the edges with black thread prior to gluing them to my boards.
I paired the collection with some paper roses, black spiderwebs, and black doilies. By using these elements along with the sewing, it adds more whimsy to the finished piece and creates a variation in textures.
I used a combination of foam squares and liquid adhesive to adhere all my elements to my pendants. After everything dried, I hole punched my pendants and strung it on some black and gold twine.
To create my clusters, I used a combination of all the elements from the “Magical and Mischievous” including the oh so cute flare buttons! I made sure each pendant had similar touches to create cohesion throughout my entire project. As you can see, each pendant has a button and some fun foil ephemera pieces.
Don’t be afraid to trim down or fussy cut some of the elements of the collection to create your own shapes and modifications to fit your project. I fussy cut several of the journaling card to create large focal pieces for my banner (the owl as an example). Thank you so much for graciously having me as your guest inspirer for the spookiest time of the year. I hope you all have a very fun and safe Halloween. Stay Spooky cuties!
