Hello my lovely peeps! Happy Independence Day!!! Today I've got a quick photo tutorial for you. I saw a red white and blue canvas banner on Pinterest and it totally inspired me to make this banner using my Pennant Set from Donna Salazar with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®.
I started by adding Crafty Power Tape (in semi straight lines... I don't like measuring) to one of the canvas panels from my Pennant Set and then I used a bone folder (I didn't clean it for the picture... LOL) to make sure that the tape was really pressed into the canvas.
On my first try I didn't use the shipping tags to "contain" the Pigment Powder and let's just say it was just a tad messy. So on this second try I left the liner on the stripes of adhesive that I wasn't working on and I used these shipping tags as a stencil.
I brushed the pigment right over the exposed adhesives to get my red lines. I used my Pigment Powder in Wine... which is perfect because wine and the 4th of July go perfectly together!!! LOL!!!
Once I was finished the lines looked like the photo below. There was still a little extra Pigment Powder but it was much more contained.
I used a small paint brush and painted over the canvas but I made sure that the canvas still showed through in several spots so that my panels would look kind of distressed.
When I was done with the painted lines the panel looked like the photo below.
I used one of the denim colored chambray panels (that also come in the Pennant Set) cut it into quarters then cut off the stitched edging.
I used Home & Hobby's Premium Double Sided Tape in the 1" size on the back of the rectangle...
Then adhered it to the top right corner of the panel.
I used my Girlie Grunge Art Medium (diluted by half with water) and brushed over the entire panel.
I needed the chambray to have a coating over it because I am adding my E-Z Stars which is a double sided adhesive runner with star shapes and they don't normally like sticking directly to material that isn't coated. I also needed to make sure that it was completely dry before adding the stars because adhesives don't like sticking to wet material either.
I added the E-Z Stars in a random pattern (yes... I know there aren't enough stars for the actual flag but this is just a cute little home decor item and I didn't think it mattered). I sprinkled my Twinkle Dust Glitter in Sugar Shimmer over the stars and used my finger to burnish the glitter into the adhesive.
I used undiluted Girlie Grunge Art Medium across the top of the panel
