RAKs

I mailed these banners or pennants...not sure which they are...as Random Acts of Kindness ... or Random Acts of Art. I love this shape. I want to make more of these soon. I'm about caught up on my art commitments. I did these on canvas...comes in a pad at Michael's. Pam Garrison is my original inspiration for these. Her link is in the Favorite Blogs list to the left. Some of these have buttons hanging from the bottom and some have bells. I sewed wallpaper on most of them for the main base on top of the canvas. Do you like the wish ticket and the fish? The woman in the hat is my mother-in-law back in the 40's. If you click on the pictures, you can see them larger. Another inspiration for these is Tammy Gilley. I LOVE her stuff. Next will be my ornaments for the exchange at Silver Bella in Omaha next month! I have to make 16 of something aqua and silver! I have a few ideas.... That's a little rusty heart on the bottom of the last banner....I cut it off from a garland of rusty hearts. I like that green twig ribbon, too. One day soon I'm gonna run out of that. That photo is one I've had for a long time of a woman on the back of the motorcycle with a Christmas tree. Seems like I got it in a swap??? The girl up at the top holding her skirt out is one I got in a swap...I use her a lot. Have a great weekend. I am going to a friend's son's wedding at First Baptist Houston on Saturday. So the kids are going to the Aggie game without us. Gig em.

Linda, No matter whose art you reference as your inspiration, you will ALWAYS remain The Pennant Woman to me. :) I love the "WISH" ticket inside the harlequin ring with the baby beneath and the little girl showing off her dress (great popping zig zag border!). So sweet. SO fun! :) The vintage biker chick is wonderful too!

Your banners are great. Like you I still have my ornaments to work on as well.

These are awesome Linda! I love the image of the woman on the back of the motorycycle. Wish tickets are awesome too. I'm not in the ornament exchange, but I have my tags left to make.
