July Pennant Swap

Another happy crafting day spent with friends,
including our monthly swap
Here is my pennant, using Georgina Stylised Woodware flower
stamps available in two sizes, I love them.
The smaller size used in the background
 with white embossing powder.
The flowers were stamped onto Gelli plate
background cardstock when I used dye inks, stamping
to remove the ink before lifting the print.
My pennant swap
The following pennants by other members using several styles.

Pamela's Mixed Media Board

I am very pleased to share photos of Pamela's board
this is the board after painting the background and adding
embossing paste to random areas, gluing die cuts
and other items to the board

Pamela decided to lay out her items to follow the flow
of the wisteria flower and leaves (top left),
covering surrounding areas with white gesso
Pamela's finished mixed media board
A close up of the finished board with paint and
and gilding paste to highlight some areas
We all had such fun and had fun working outside our comfort zone
but willing to try it to see if it would be something we would
attempt again.
Back later with another post and more pennants.
