PPF: Prayer Flag Sampler

One of my favorite current projects is a sampler of ideas for prayer flags. I posted my first page here.  As predicted, prayer flags seem to be gaining traction in the crafting world. The magazine Cloth Paper Scissors just ran this cover story.  You can read a blog post about the article at the Prayer Flag Project here.  Recently, I made a cover for my prayer flag sampler (above). Although I still haven't made any actual flags, but I'm still collecting ideas in my sampler.  Here's a new one:
And one more with a face I particularly like.
This post is part of Paint Party Friday.  For more painterly goodness, check out the links at this post.

Last year I made a lot of prayer flags. I have some rolls of canvas that have been cut up specifically for prayer flags. As soon as it is warmer, I'm heading outside in my patio to work on them. Great job with your prayer flags. It awesome when they are moving in the wind. Take care. Happy PPF!
