Prayer Flags

 1 prayer flag
I'm thrilled to be participating in the Prayer Flag Blog Hop. As you know, I love prayer flags and have made a number of them (see them here)
2 prayer flags
Here's what I created from the Prayer Flag Value pack, which included the ready made linen banners and the ebook
purchase a copy of the Prayer Flag e-book!

First I got out my trusty Gelli printing plates and rubber bands, to add a bit of color and texture to the linen flags

and grabbed some fabric that I had printed before using the same technique.

I cut out circles from the printed fabric and fused them to the printed flags.

Then, I cut out the images from my fabric yardage, with my designs (that you can purchase) and fused those to the flags.
