Default TLC686 ~ It's a BANNER Day! ~ (04/15/18)

Happy Monday Everyone! It is that time again! Time for a technique challenge!


Today I decided to try a card with the ever popular idea of hand lettering and banners. While you don't have to do the lettering (unless you want to), I challenge you to create a card with a banner that you create yourself. It can be as simple or as elaborate as you chose.


You can search online for how to draw banners (there are a lot of tutorials), but here is a fun link that has a lot of examples (from super simple to less simple):





Here is my sample:
Think on These Things!

I can't wait to see what you come up with and no matter what...Just have FUN!!

My attempt - sorry, but I am just not any way artistic when it comes to pen and paper.

TLC686 (Un)Happy Banner

I can see why paper like in the video would make it so much easier! I didn't have time before work to look for gridded paper and try a template first.

CAS477: KelliJo this was a fantastic challenge today! I had no idea about this info on the red poppy.

TLC686: Rebecca I also enjoyed your challenge. I had to use a computer to generated my banner and sentiment. I hope that counts.

Hi All!!

You guys are hitting this challenge out of the park. I see a lot of you saying it is out of your comfort zone but WOW - who would know based on the results!

If you haven't jumped in yet because you are a little leery about free hand drawing your banner. A ruler and/or a bowl(or other curved object) often help me feel a little more confident!


Thanks for playing along - you guys are an inspiration for sure!

Thank you Lyn for a fun challenge. I fought a migraine most of the day, but the aspirin finally kicked in and I was able to make this tag. I drew the banner with a pencil first before using a sharpie marker to go over the banner.

This was really a great challenge for me! I was able to make a banner without too much trouble, but writing the sentiment was more difficult for me. I tried many different ones and was not happy ewith the result. I finally just decided to stamp a sentiment (was not centered very well). It was time for me to move on.

Yahoo - I like getting to put my scissors to good use rather than add more "tools" to my already-crowded crafting drawers! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Here is my card:
