January is a Banner Month!!


Wow! I have had great response about the January Banner Month. We are going to have so much fun!
Now to answer the questions about pennant specifics.

The pennant size will be up to you and how you plan to use your completed banner. My template is 6 "x7 1/2" x7 1/2".

It seems specific instructions are preferable to generalities, so our theme for the month will be "Dream". The first week's pennant will feature a "D", the second week an "R" and so on. For those that want more prompts, there will be an additional optional element to incorporate each week. On the last week, we will post the final pennant and the completed banner.

The pennants will be posted each Wednesday in January. After you have posted your pennant and a link to this site on your blog, come here and leave a comment for all the other participants to find you.

After I decided to host this banner challenge, I went in search of illustrations of what I had in mind. Lucky for me, I found some great links and pictures!

This link is one you absolutely must go to!

Below is great banner done by Cris at welcome to my world of crisp art.

These banners below were featured in the July/August 2006 edition of Somerset Studio.

Hopefully these links and pictures have answered your questions and inspired you to create works of greatness!

**The optional prompt for the first week is dragonfly. If you choose, incorporate a dragonfly somewhere on your "D" pennant. I'll post my entry on January 2. See you then!

Cool idea! I've never participated in anything like this and am not sure if I'll be able to keep up but it sounds intriguing so I'm willing to try.

Count me in!
