August and July Pennants

Am catching up with my Pennant making, one for each month of the year. Have made 8 so far, including these, so only 4 more to go.............

August - 'Nature is the greatest of all Artists'
Oops its hanging a bit wonky,  I tried to capture the gold embossing on camera, you can see the top gold embossing but not the bottom gold embossing......never mind.  The background was created with acrylics, Stamps by Acid Drops and What Nots, Kelly Panicci and Crafty Individuals.  Am going to enter this one into the Craft Room Challenge where they are asking for Heat Embossing.

July - 'Life is Tickety-Boo'
oh good at least this one is hanging straight............background created with acrylics, Stamps by Lost Coast Designs and Crafty Individuals, yep I was in a butterfly mood today........lol
Am entering this one into Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes

Both of these pennants are also entered into Ali-Craft - Butterflies

Am also taking these pennants to Paint Party Friday as haven't completed any paintings at the moment, lots of fun and messing about, but nothing ready to show yet..............

PS.....have just seen my Walking in Rain Canvas has been spotlighted today (Friday) at Paint Party Friday.....woo hoo.......am pleased as punch with this news.............

We have had some heavy duty thunderstorms and the rain has been coming down like stair rods, thank heavens I was indoors playing with these.  Thank you for popping in, take care of yourselves and will see you soon, hugs Annette x

Hi Netty, I am getting behind here and flat missed your pennants. I heard yall were getting rain by my cousin that lives over there with you. Indoor art is the best and during the winter also. Always love what you do my dear.

Zoe Sanderson said...

Brilliant fun, and the gold embossing on the first is clear top and bottom. No back story? I imagine her like a modern day French Lieutenant's woman, standing on the shore on a warm breezy day looking out to sea and remembering.

Thank you for joining us again at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe
