Beachy Banners

My assignment was to create beach inspired banners.
October Afternoon papers made that an easy task!
I have stockpiled this weathered wood paper.
It always makes me happy when I can use some of the paper I hoard.
Feels like I have won something.
Nevermind that I have stacks of paper taller than I am.
I am a winner.
The new theme is up at Paper Issues.
Seems like "Make a Splash" is a good time to bust out these banners.
Come link up.  It will make my day. I will probably feature you too!
The alphas are Thickers from American Crafts.
They are Sunrise Natural.
I love them because they are naked and I can do what I want.
I just added some ink to match the paper.
Easy Peasy.
The jute is from Canvas Corp.
It is my favorite.  So versatile and perfect for boy banners!

  12. Love those banners! The wavy edges are killer. I love those sunrise natural alphas too. I recently saw 3 packs on sale for 10 bucks but the shipping would have cost another 10 dollars (the deal included kraft paper) and thought "That's no bargain!". I kick myself now because they aren't available any where else. Love how you painted them!
