Family Altered Banner

Ok, so after much a fuss, I am finally able to get this bad boy on the blog! Here is my little contribution to our Giving Thanks Blog Hop. I have to say it has been such a pleasure being a part of this wonderful group of ladies. Even though we all have such different styles, it is great to see them come together in a common thread of thanksgiving.

This Banner is using the coppering technique on Tattered Angels Chip Tiles and a whole lot of fun textures. I altered a faux rusted star garland that I got at a local home decor discount store for 2.99, totally worth it!

Here are the letters in the banner, 6 total spelling FAMILY. I wish I would have thought to make the title FAMILY a color other than brown, but I was in the moment and well, brown was hot and I just couldn't resist!

Here are some close up shots of the letters so that you can see a little more into the details of the Chip Tiles.
