Yesterday, I posted about two holiday banners I made using twelve pennants that were made throughout the year.

The first banner was made with pennants sent to me by twelve mixed media artists. The second pennant I made as a Christmas gift for a friend. I made pennants throughout the year using image transfers of photographs of her family and her pets.

The pennants from the mixed media arts group are all different. The ones made for my friend are all made from white fabric backed with iron-on interface.

Here is the video showing both banners:

series of 12 holiday pennants assembled into a banner For the past year, I have been posting about the monthly pennant swap at Art for the Creative Mind.

Every month, we swapped a pennant. The pennants were all vintage white in color, and were decorated according to a monthly theme.

When the last pennant arrived in December, I assembled my pennants into this banner.

These pennants are the ones I received, and each one is made by a different artist.

I actually have 13 rather than 12 because I swapped twice one month.

I used twill tape glued on the back to hold the pennants together.

I used needle and thread to attach small rhinestone beads in between each pennant.

I also made a second banner which was a gift for my friend for Christmas.

I will show a picture of it soon, and also a video that I made showing the two banners up close and personal.

pennant made for a holiday banner As I have blogged earlier, the swap group that I belong to is having a year old swap of holiday-themed pennants. Come Christmas, we will assemble our 12 pennants into a banner.

This is the pennant that I made for the month of August.  The theme was something to do with winter blossoms, I think.

I made my pennant out of off-white fabric and lined the back with iron-on interfacing.

The gold poinsettia is an Outlines sticker. I added some red using a red gel pen.

Other trim is a leave made from an Outline sticker, cream colored pearls and a complete surround of off-white lace.

There is a dangling thing from the bottom although it doesn’t show in this picture.

I think this is rather attractive. It looks better in real life than in the picture.

pennant with holiday theme At my swap group called Art for the Creative Mind, we are making a holiday-themed pennant each month and swapping them. By year’s end, we should have twelve pennants made by different people. We can assemble the pennants into a banner if desired.

This is the pennant I made for the month of August.  All pennants are to be winter white in color, and the specific theme for August was “pinwheel.”

I confess to not understanding much about a pinwheel, so I ended up making this shape from vellum. I used teabag folding as the technique.

The pennant itself is made from white fabric backed with iron on interface. I covered the front with the white lace as sown and trimmed with white ribbon along one edge, and translucent gold ribbon along the top border.

I put a clear rhinestone in the center of the teabag folded pinwheel just because I felt like it.

pennant for holiday banner This pennant for a holiday banner is another one of the twelve that I am making for our Yahoo swap group, Art for the Creative Mind (AFTCM).

All of the pennants are to be vintage white in color.

My friend Joan, knitter extraordinaire, made this tiny sweater with matching scarf for me to use on the pennants.

I made a tiny snowman or snow person and dressed him or her in the knitware.

Other trim includes white rickrack, a scrap of multi colored ribbon for the hat, beads for eyes and a strip of lace for edging.

I used a gold sticker for the Merry Christmas message.

I have a second little sweater done in vibrant yellow. I will use it for another pennant.

winter holiday pennant with theme of Christmas music This is another pennant made for the banner series that we are making at Art for the Creative Mind. Every month, we create a winter-white colored pennant with a theme pertaining to Christmas or the winter holiday.

The theme this month was “Christmas music“.

I made all of my pennants back in January. They are fabric pennants backed with iron-on interfacing. I decorate them monthly as needed.

For this one, I created a digital image using Photoshop, and then did an image transfer using gel medium.

The background is sheet music with a Christmas song. The blue part is an image from Graphics Fairy Blogspot. It is Christmas ornaments — horn, flute and a few others.

I trimmed with bluish-white fibre along the top, and added some felt snowflakes which I filled with Diamond glitter glue.

In my stash, I found a silvery gray tassel and attached it at the bottom.

vintage girl and plaid ribbon on this pennant for holiday banner Yesterday, I posted about the January Pennant for our Banner Swap at AFTCM.

This is the February pennant.  The pennant itself is made from cotton fabric with iron-on interfacing for stiffening.

As before, I used an image of a vintage girl and did an inkjet image transfer using gel medium.

I decorated with old fashioned tartan ribbon, which I love so much.

I added a little gold mesh to the bottom of the pennant, and I added a little glittery gold thread underneath the fabric flower The pearl button is actually a clip-on earring. I used wire cutters to remove the clip.

Since the optional theme for February was glitter, I added some dabs of clear glitter glue to represent snowflakes.  Also, I think the gold thread and the gold mesh at the bottom sort of represent glitter.

vintage style pennant for holiday banner with image transfer
vintage style pennant for holiday banner with image transfer

I know its not easy to think of making winter or holiday or Christmas banners, just now, but nevertheless, that is what I am doing. It will get even weirder in July!

At Art for the Creative Mind, we have commenced a year long swap project, in which we swap hand made pennants each month. At year end, we should have 12 spectacular pennants which we can attach together and make a pennant.

The pennants are to be done in winter white or vintage white. Each month has an optional theme. The optional theme for January was Vintage Winter.

I made all of my pennants from fabric and I applied iron-on interfacing to the back. I will decorate them month by month.

This is January’s. I did two similar ones because I had two partners. I used an inkjet image transfer with glossy gel medium at the transfer agent.  As you can see, the little girl is vintage, and is wearing winter white clothing. There is a sense of a holiday tree in the back ground.

I glued the image in place and trimmed with various laces, ribbons, heart-shaped buttons and pink rhinestones.  For the second, I made a flower using the same fabric as the pennant, and cut it using Tim Holtz Alterations Floral die.

I am making a second set of pennants for myself, so all in all, I plan on completing at least 24 of these this year.

tag themed reindeer and holly This is the second tag I made with the theme “reindeer and holly.”

As in the first one I made, we were asked to use reinkers and spritzed water for the background.  I used Distress Ink — I think it may have been Old Paper — and spritzed water generously. It gave a nice, subtle tag colour that I like quite a bit.

I cut scallops around the edges using a set of Martha Stewart corner and edging punches.

The reindeer is a die cut from velvet paper, using a Memories die.

The holly is a rubber stamp using green ink. I added red glitter glue for the holly.

I gave the reindeer a red rhinestone collar. It is not Rudolph, by the way. I am honouring one of the lesser known reindeer — possibly Donder LOL

I finished by tying some fibre at the top, for hanging.

tag with reindeer and holly theme This is one of two tags that I made for a swap at Art for the Creative Mind. The theme was Reindeer and Holly.  We were also supposed to use a background that involved reinkers and a spry mist bottle. We were permitted to use a substitute product if we did not have reinkers on hand.
Since I do not own any reinkers, I opted to use Tattered Rose Distress Ink and a spray mister bottle.

The results was a subtle rose coloured background. I rubbed some extra colour along the borders.

I was in the mood for humor and I thought of the song, Grandma got Run Over by a Reindeer.

Instead of Grandma, I went with Grandpa. I had a vintage picture of a gentleman, which I believe had been on a Tim Holtz paper.

The frame is a stamped image that I heat embossed using a pale pink Distress powder. It is applied with 3D tape for dimension.

The reindeer and the holly are both made with stamps. The red berries and the red nose are glitter glue. The text is computer generated.

Finally, the row of holly along the bottom was cut from some scrap paper in my stash.

I added a length of red and cream coloured string for hanging.
