H2H Home Decor ~ Family Banner

This week on H2H Blog the theme is to show artwork in your home decor. This is truly from my heart to yours!

As you can see it hangs proudly above my wall of family photo's. It is a subtle touch of color to this prominently black & white themed wall!

Here is a closer look at the banner~

The story behind my banner goes like this: I originally created it last summer in hopes that it would become my very first entry in our town's fair. For the previous 4 years I would visit the arts and crafts hall to see the lovely entries of other talented artists in my area. I felt confident enough to enter something of my own. The banner really became a labor of love, meticulously arranging each individual piece perfectly. As the date drew near for the final day to enter I realized that my Husband and I had plans to leave town for another event. I was unable to submit my artwork on the turn in date. It now decorates my hallway and brings me much happiness when I look at it. Maybe I can still enter this year!?!

L= LOVE ~ There is a lot of Love behind this clear scallop flap.

Some of the best roses I've created.
