January 15, 2018

These are the panels I created for the February 2018 Welcome Banner for my classroom. I don’t have a full picture of it yet because I haven’t hung it up yet.

Details

Size:  Heart Shaped Panels about 6 by 6.25 inches

Extra Details:  I began this banner by die cutting all of the large hearts. I used two shades of pink card stock because I didn’t have enough of either shade to only use one. Then I die cut the house border from some red card stock. I used a stitched hill side die to create hills for each panel. I adhered the house and hills together. Then I used the large heart die to re-cut each house and hill section to make lining everything up easier. I added some clouds to the sky area with white pigment ink.

I stamp all of the images on some smooth white card stock. I colored everything with markers that my kiddos gave me for Christmas. I like the variety of colors but I am not very good shading with those markers yet. I fussy cut everything out leaving a small white border.

I used glue dots to adhere all of the images to the heart shaped panels. Then I remembered that I hadn’t included the letters for Welcome yet. So I die cut them from some red card stock and used liquid glue to adhere them to the panels.
