Fun Tip Friday with Jennifer Longenecker

Today I'm going to show you how to use the collage technique to create this fun banner.




Grab your supplies. You will need a shaped chipboard album, paint, modpodge and other fun items like book pages, masking tape, tickets, fabric, stencils, etc.




Step 1: Paint each chipboard page. Since we are going for the collage look just do a dry wash so that some of the natural page is showing and so the paint appears thicker in some areas than others.




Step 2: Using Mod Podge sdd torn pieces of book pages making sure to overlap several pieces.




Step 3: Using water colors paint over thee book page strips




Step 4: Add strips of masking tape. Again making sure to overlap the strips.




Step 5: Add a line of acrylic paint over each masking tape section with a paint brush then get the brush wet and continue the brush the paint over each section.




Step 6: Again using the Mod Podge add torn strips of fabric.




Step 7: Paint a stencil or stamp with acrylic paint and stamp in bare areas.




Step 8: Add your sentiment.




Step 9: Tie on torn strips of fabric to complete the banner.
