How did you do the silhouette of the hands?

I Googled "hand silhouettes," found one I liked, resized, printed, cut it out, and used it as a template Smiley

Thanks Pioneer9.  I love the raw and simplicity of it.

I'm glad you liked it! Hope it wasn't too simple-- everyone else here is putting me to shame with their awesomeness.

I received my second flag today from Smmarrt. It is awesome-I love it!

(This was the best pic I could get without the flash washing out the print on the roofs.)




She said the roofs are made from a Japanese newspaper-so cool! The grass seems to be some sort of plastic which is super neat. I love how each of the houses are a little different, and the heart button is cute! Thank you so much Smmarrt!

My favorite part of what I received in this swap is how both of my partners made flags with my love of tiny houses in their own styles! Now to find the perfect place to hang them!!

The grass is the stuff that you find in prepackaged sushi, sold at the grocery store. No, I didn't recycle! I bought a small package at the Japanese $1 store. So happy you're happy - I love tiny houses! (Hint, hint for the upcoming swap!)

I love tiny houses too, what a great flag! I love the love flag too, I love simplicity and meaningful in the same flag. It really allows you the space and time to contemplate and appreciate the word/phrase.

I received from WingsOfClay!The flag is just gorgeous, lemme tell ya! I'm so jealous of her painting skills!  Shocked When I hold it I feel all warm and happy and content. So much good energy is blossoming out of it Cheesy Now my only problem: WHERE DO I HANG IT?! In the living room or in MY room? Choice choices Wink

Here's the flag I made for IsikkahJai (I happened to have some pics of it already):





Long story short, the quote: "I am here. I love you" from Eat, Pray, Love held a lot of significance for my partner, so I went with that. I also "bolded" the words "I AM" and "LOVE" so that the flag can also simply read "I AM LOVE", and also to evoke "I AM" as one of the names for Higher Power or God.

The dots around the letters are puffy fabric paint. The heart is from a bag of junk jewelry: painted with copper paint and patina solution. Other than that: scraps, markers, clearance ribbon. My little sister taught me how to embroider so that I could do the hands; found a reference image of hands by doing google image search "got the whole world in his hands".

Glad u love it, IsikkahJai! Smiley

Oh wow! WingsOfClay, that is an amazing flag. I really love how you did the dots around the letters and the patina on the locket. It really is a beautiful flag Smiley
