We're having a BANNER DAY with Bo Bunny's Garden Journal


Hi everyone!  ReNae here!  
Summer is here and it's time for garden parties, picnics, and outdoor Bar-B-Q's!
What better way to liven up your venue than with a beautiful banner made with 
Bo Bunny's "Garden Journal I want it All Bundle" by FotoBella?



This Banner came to be as a result of a contest I held with the members of my awesome swap group Chic Craftique!

Just look at all the wonderful products you can get
In the Garden Journal "I want it All! Bundle" by FotoBella
Additional products from Bo Bunny 
I asked the members, 
"What would YOU create if you could use all these awesome products?"


I received a lot of really great ideas and the winning idea was by Julie Monroe, who suggested making a summertime BANNER!  This banner was made using the Garden Journal "I want it All!" Bundle plus a few other supplies from Bo Bunny and FotoBella

Note: To purchase any or all of these supplies just click on the highlighted word and it will link you to the website!  

Now, on to the BANNER!
The first flag I made was the centerpiece.  I used a bird image from the paper collection, fussy-cut it out, and painted it with Bo Bunny's Glitter Paste.  
It just shimmers! 

The left photo shows the FLORET I made using my own scoring board and bone folder.  (Please refer to the tutorial on the FotoBella Blog from May 26th) The right photo shows a bit better the sparkle and shine of the Bo Bunny Glitter Paste.  I also used it on the Laser-cut Butterflies!  SO Pretty!
On each side of the center pennant I hung a flag.  Chipboard sentiments from the Bundle and more florets embellish the flags.  I embellished the butterflies with bling from the Bundle.
Above you can see how very shiny and glitzy the glitter makes the butterflies! Two doilies hang at the bottom of the flags.

Another pennant and flag embellished with florets, doilies, chipboard sentiments and butterflies.

I decorated the outer pennants with chipboard swirls, which I cut in half, then adhered to each. Doilies and florets complete the look. Each pennant featured a bird, and each flag a butterfly.

This is a close-up of one of the 2 end flags.  They were slightly more narrow than the flags in the center.
Here you can see the other pennant, where I used the other chipboard swirl, again cutting it in half and adhering. Instead of a large floret I made a fan and a small floret and placed a glitter-painted bird on top.
 

Here are two close-ups of the pennant.  Love that Glitter Paste!

Another flag, and you can see that I used the same format for all.

This Banner is so pretty and will be perfect for any outdoor venue!  Try making one yourself!  It's fun!

Until next time, Happy Creating!
