Today it is my turn to host the Challenge over at Stampotique. I chose the theme 'ribbon'.
I reallly struggle to use ribbon in my projects but I do like it. So why don't you show me what you do with ribbon and maybe you can teach me a thing or two ! Have fun !
I made a feeble attempt and this is the result; an art journal :
I used the journal I made in France Papillon's workshop. It is fabulous but I don't know whether I could make another one. It's a so called Coptic Binding and I thought is was quite difficult at the time.. By now I have completely forgotten how to do it...
Anyway, I painted the pages with Dylusions turquoise paint and then used a Donna Downey stencil and white Dylusions paint to create the flowers.
I sparingly stamped the background with grey ink and then adhered the ribbon over the pages, folding it over at the ends and stapling it to the page. I then added the black rub on which almost looks like a ribbon :0) and then stamped 'Glimmering Hope' on gessoed book text and lightly coloured her with coloured pencils. I tore her out and adhered her to the page. Next I added the rub-on letters spelling DIVA and doodled around the page with a black pen.
That was it...
I used only two stamps :
