May Arts Ribbon Blog

 

I decided to pull out an old photo do to a layout for this fun collaboration with Creative Imaginations!  The rich papers worked so well with some of the GORGEOUS ribbon choices from May Arts!

 

Supplies:

 

To begin this layout I chose my papers, cut them into various sized strips, and began laying them out how I thought I would want them.

Once I had an arrangement I liked, I went ahead and adhered the strips to one another and set the block aside.  I then decided to add some mist to my background.  I used a rag to smear the ink a bit on the background.  After it was dry, I adhered the block of strips over the background.
The next step was to pull out LOTS of ribbon and start making decisions!  I chose a few that I felt worked well with the photo and the papers and adhered them to my background.  I used my Tiny Attacher to attach the silk ribbon so it could remain fluid and loose.

I added my photo and a couple of die cuts to accent it.  The photo is popped up with foam tape so it fits nicely over the layers of ribbon.

Next came the title.  I added the letter stickers and decided they needed just a little something to make them pop.  I stitched the twine over them by hand (I did remove a few strands from the twine to make the stitching easier) and then highlighted the letters with a white pen.

Finally, a few sequins fell off the elastic strip as I worked and I like that, so I glued them where they landed and then added a few more.  I used stickers and die cuts to embellish around the layout, stamped a few leafy blocks, and popped in some gemstone brads to finish it all off!

I love how the ribbon and the Christine Adolph collection work SO well together!  Thanks for stopping by!

    Beautiful layout!  I am wondering though – did you stamp some blocks of leaves on the kraft background?  You didn't mention it in your explanation.

      Lynda,  I DID stamp those leaf blocks using a Stampendous! stamp mentioned in the supply list!  I am sorry that I left that step out!  I just added them toward the end, but of course, you could easily do it prior to layering!
