Designer Crafts Connection - First Monday in June Project

Hello there, it's been a while since I have posted, so much going on with Graduations and Weddings that the time has slipped away from me. So, on with this month's project!

Our theme is month for the blog hop is - Patriotism!

I created this USA banner using the K & Company Americana Collection. I have to say that I LOVE this entire collection of papers and embellishments! Very vintage and very versitile!

I painted three star shaped plaques that I purchased at the craft store ivory, then antiqued them and added a paper base, securing with Continuous Glue Lines from Glue Dots. I then made three rosettes and mounted each one with the chipboard letters U-S-A with Pop Up Glue Dots for dimension. I trimmed everything out in some tinsel, then strung it all together with wire, beads, covered spools and ribbon bits.

Here are some close up shots:

Hope you have nejoyed my post. Now you can "HOP" along to the next designer and get some more patriotic inspiration by clicking the Designer Crafts Connection link on the left side of my blog.
