Beautiful Girl Pennant

Hi Everyone,
I am back with my second post of the month for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  Today I have a pennant for you. 

I love this technique for making art pennants.  You can make really stunning backgrounds. 
Start by adhering tissue wrap to a canvas pennant using Pellon EZ Steam II.  Once the tissue is firmly attached trim it to size. 
Color your pennant using Distress inks, paints, and crayons.  Emboss the edge in gold.  
Yo can see there is a lot of detail on here.  Lots of inky layers and flicks of paint too. 
Paint your mini journaling block with a cream color and let dry.  Add a layer of gesso to your Layered Bella Frame.  Emboss your Medium Fairy using Oil Rubbed Bronze from Emerald Creek. 
Use Distress Crayons to color your journaling block.  
Emboss the back of the Layered Bella Frame using Ancient Amber from Seth Apter. Color the front using Distress Crayons.  The finished frame has white gel pen around the edge to look like stitching. 
Adhere your frame to the journaling block. Use a bit of foam tape to pop the fairy in the frame. 
Glue the whole piece to the pennant.  
Add your Big Chat stickers and using a Stabilo pencil outline the words a bit.  Add dots with a white gel pen.  
Use a Distress Marker to color the edge of vintage seam binding and wet to make color feather and wrinkle the binding.  Run the seam binding through the slot in the pennant and create your hanger.  Add a large fluffy bow made out of the seam binding.  
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial!
