New Banner


Posted on Oct 30, 2010

I'm in the midst of creating a new banner which is part of my whole re-vamping my blog project.  I didn't realize that a new banner would be so tricky to think up and then create.  I think I have a pretty solid idea of how I'd like it to look and now I'm working on executing my design.  I'd like to incorporate my favorite mediums.  Metal is definitely a medium I love working in....

OK, I've started to be a bit addicted to researching paper flowers.  There are just so many great ideas on the internet and I love looking at all the pretty creations.  It also helps wrap my head around my project of making paper flowers for my cousin's wedding and keeps me trying to work out the details in my head before I start crafting.  I apologize in advance if I get to be a bit too flower crazy, but...

My husband found this for me at Goodwill.  I love it and would love to know who made it.  It's definitely handmade and there are no signatures or markings.

Why yes, yes it does!  I couldn't believe my luck when I found this 30 pound box of tiles at a garage sale!  Mosaics have been on my mind for awhile lately.     I had seen this mosaic in a window that I just loved.  I really would like to try to make something on the order of this, but a completely different pattern.  Now I have tiles to do it.  I already  have the tile cutters and...
