The other day, I was thinking about playing with some of the great textured papers from DCWV, included the fun printed cork and the beautiful coloured burlap sheets. I figured that an Easter banner would be a nice way to brighten up these dreary spring days, but I figured that if I put in all that work, it was a shame to only be able to have it up for a couple of days. Then it hit me – why not make a double sided banner?!
In fact, “SPRING” and “EASTER” turned out to be the perfect match! :) I did play with the patterns a bit – using the same pattern in different colours for the Easter side, and mixing up the patterns for the Spring side. I also embellished each side a bit differently just for some variety.
Just a note – when I first envisioned this banner, I had actually planned to add a few 3D flowers. But as I started creating, I realized that because the banner was double sided, I really needed to keep both sides quite flat so the banner would hang properly. I am actually really glad that I went clean and simple. There is so much great texture going on with these supplies, and I think it really keeps that at the forefront. And anyway, spring here in Canada is pretty bare bones, so it works well! ;)
Well, that’s it for me! I promised Easter projects and I do have more for you (including a cute little treat container), so be sure to come by again this week!
Thanks for stopping by!
