Inspiration flags……


I’ve been reading a lot about prayer flags lately and wanted to make some for myself.


For now, mine hang over the valance in my “playroom”!  I plan on putting them outside when the weather gets a little better and I may add a few more flags to make it longer.


I used 5 by 6 inches pieces of painter’s drop cloth for the flag bases.  I did coat both sides with gesso before I painted them with acrylic craft paint and I used Sharpie pens for lettering and highlighting the designs.


Since everything about my flags is non-traditional, I am calling them “inspiration flags”  instead of  prayer flags.


The goal of sending positive messages into the cosmos remains the same.

I love these, Jan! The colors and messages are so uplifting and energizing!

Like you, this week has gotten away from me. It was fun seeing your tole painting from the past, and where your art has turned into these days. These are some pretty special flags. I may have to try making a few of these, myself. I like that they are non-traditional, which I feel is even more fun!
