For Thanksgiving I made a "Blessings" banner that hung in my dining room and my husband just loved it. I was so excited he liked it because he normally has no opinion about such things. So when he asked me to make one for Christmas I jumped on it.
This turned out to be a not so good lesson in color theory and how not to use too much pattern, etc.
So I began by cutting a banner out of the red then a large star from a pretty pattern paper that contained all the colors I wanted to include. (See at this point, I thought I was doing real well choosing paper...)
If you look closely you will see a scalloped circle but from a great yellow/gold paper with music on it backed with a green shadow. I LOVED this music paper and it was to be a sort of "feature" of this banner. Well, then I cut the letters, using Cindy Loo out of the same red paper. Turns out...too much red. It all kind of blended together and when I first hung it up you couldn't read the letters AT ALL!!! I was so bummed!!!!
I can't leave without mentioning that Kristal at Getting Cricky will be having a Snow Much Fun blog hop coming up on December 16th with great projects from our wonderful design team. I hope you will join us.
