Here a banner, there a banner, everywhere a banner banner.
Whatever you choose to call them; banners, pennants, or buntings, they are all in style. They are not just for birthdays and holidays. They are for every day!
A great thing about mixed meda art is that you get to use everyday found objects and incorporate it into your creations. Flashcards? Yep, flashcards. I'm not the first to use flashcards, nor will I be the last. I think the appeal is that it takes us back to elementary school. It's the feeling of mastering numbers, and numbers are hot, in style, the thaaaang that makes a mixed media artist's heart beat.
I made this garland out of flash cards, music paper, and some vintage ledger paper. I threw in some vintage jewels, a cameo and a paper flower. I strung seam binding through punched holes, and added a few scrunched pieces to stream down. Oh so easy, try it you'll see!
Banners are for everyday. Hang them across a mirror, a window, or wall.
