In the US, we still have Halloween this month and most of the month of November before we celebrate Thanksgiving on November 27th, but I’m creating samples for a class I’m teaching next month, and thought I’d go ahead and share these creations as Canada is celebrating their Thanksgiving Day today. Cheers, Canada!
PROJECT TIP: Get cohesion in your choices! When I was conceptualizing my projects – selecting colors and papers for these banners – I had the fun idea to add texture to the kraft paper. But what type of texture? I let the theme of the papers lead my decision… leaves and trees, so adding wood grain texture to the neutral kraft cardstock seemed like the perfect fit! Did you notice it on the banners? What do you think? Pretty cool, huh?!
If you’d like to order either of these banners, please visit my Etsy shop! I’m adding more to it every week 🙂 If you have any special orders, I can help you there too! Just send me a private message!
