Fall Banner

Hi everyone !! Eunice here , with a quick little banner to make for fall !  I wanted a larger size banner to either hang alone or also hang on a wreath , so either way it works !!
I cut my banner from heavy chip board , you can also use card board or whatever you have handy !! First covered banner with vintage sheet music paper for the background, inked the edges ! Using a hole punch I punched two holes on the top to hang it ! The fun part of embellishing comes next ! I created some folded flowers , you can create these with the Scor-Pal available at Altered Pages !I layered two and topped with a colorful brad !
 Using rubber stamps I made my "FALL" statement ! I used my License Plate stamps , a super fun stamp set for writing words for projects or journals ! I stamped on cardstock , crunched it up and then inked it for a worn look ! I added a little twig at the top with my ribbon to hang , another fall touch !
 I used a little colorful brad & paper embellishment for the bottom !  The background of the banner was some embellishment laying on my crafting table , you can add any paper strips , words, or ribbon for a layered look !
This is the banner in full view !! I also attached two little leaves tied with a cord , I also gave them a good crunching also !!! Happy Fall days ahead and have a great and creative day !

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
