Back in October Katherine share a blog post as part of Trends on Tuesdays all about banners and it seems the trend is still popular among scrapbookers, and certainly the design team. From using large strips of paper cut into banners as the focal point of your page, to smaller banner pieces tucked on a page or even a bunting line of banners they are everywhere. The design team gallery for February saw many examples of this.

Karen's beautiful layout sees the banner pieces cut from a variety of coordinating pattern papers (great way to use up those little pieces you have remaining).

Edges have been inked and each banner piece slightly overlaps the next.

Katherine's I love U2 layout sees the banner pieces form her photo mount, with ink and paint and distressing softening their appearance against the background.

Distressing and inking the edges to your banner pieces can help to hide where they are not quite  symmetrical and evenly cut (as we all know they never look straight not matter how much we measure!)

Have a go at a banner inspired card or layout yourself  and be sure to share your pages by leaving a comment and link below.
