Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you are all having a great summer so far, we just got back from camping and the weather was perfect !!
Today I am sharing a layout I created as a finalist for the May Arts Ribbon design team call. I'd love to be one of the new Prima Ribbonista ! Fingers crossed :)
Hello Summer !
Supplies for this layout are from Fancy Pants Designs (Making Waves collection), May Arts Ribbon, Spellbinders and My Mind's Eye.
Here's a look at how I created this Summer themed layout.
Step 1- Create an anchor with wire and pliers.
Step 2- Wrap navy paper cord from May Arts Ribbon adding bits of glue to hold into place.
Step 3- Attach a small piece of white paper cord on the loop of the anchor.
Step 4- I love adding texture to background paper and for this project I decided to add spirals of paper cord in light blue, navy and white. I love how malleable this cord is.
Step 5- Machine stitch into place, if desired.
Step 6- Trim 3 various pieces of ribbon 2 inches long, adhere behind narrow strip of navy paper.
For this project, I used 3/4" Twill/Chevron in yellow and light blue and 7/8" Grosgrain horizontal stripes ribbon in orange.
Step 7- Fold ribbons over and trim off into points to create flags. Machine stitch the small flags into place.
Step 8- Adhere/machine stitch a 12" piece of yellow chevron ribbon on the left side of layout ,adding a strip of striped paper and a star cardstock die piece on each side.
Here's a close up of that hand crafted anchor :)
and a close up of the small flags.
I hope you've enjoyed today's tutorial.
As always, thanks for visiting.....wish me luck !
