Easter Banner

This is an Easter Banner that I was asked to do for The Crafty Scrapper.  At first I was in aahh of what to do with this but once I put the paper on the triangle cardboard it all fell into place for me.  I used the same papers for the front and back and then added strips of paper and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress ink Vintage Photo.  The triangles with the scalloped edges I did paint them with Gesso white and then inked the edges with blue ink.  I was given by Maya Roads large alphabet cardstock letters which I painted in pastel colors and dusted them with gold glitter.

On these two pages I added the alphabet letter, inked other pages with Vintage Photo ink and added the flowers, pearls, stickles and other items.

I added the alphabets and also used flowers by Prima, Petaloo, and Maya Roads.  On the Maya roads these were white flowers which I added Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Blue and Pink.  I also used from BoBunny the pearl accents.  The ribbon was given to me at TCS.  I also have a zipper pull from Prima - Junkyard Findings.

On these I added Prima flowers, Petaloo, and Maya Roads flowers and sprayed the pink one with Glimmer Mist Spray - Pink.  I added ribbon and then used my Pearl Pen by Viva - Ice White and make the little dots.  

I felt that this last piece of the banner was very important.  I could start and end the banner with a scallop border and I added a little poem as well.  I then added a flower with a pretty center.

I then punch holes at the top of the banner which I then threaded it with a lime green yard.  On the back I added by Webster Blue & White Tissue Paper Garland.  I added pieces of various ribbon in between each triangle.

Here is a list of items that I used for this project:
