Happy Wednesday everyone.
The lovely Jackie has set today's challenge and she wants us to use a bow on our projects. Here's what she said :
"Ribbons have been around since the Middle Ages. Merchants travelled the world, buying and selling ribbon, many of which had gold and silver in the silk. ribbons were a sign of nobility and worn only by the rich. By the seventh century ribbon was part of the fashion industry and was part of clothing.
Today ribbon has numerous uses, and it is a favourite crafting accessory, I have lots of it!
You can make fabulous bows with it to adorn your cards, scrapbook page, tags, journals etc.
So I would like to see you adding a bow to your project, if you don't have ribbons, bows can be made out of many mediums such as paper, clay, string to name but a few!
I looking forward to seeing your creations with a bow!"
If you fancy playing too then go over the Designers' Challenge blog and read all the rules. You could win a $30,-- voucher to spend in the SHOP.
I did an art journal and this is it :
I am really liking these 'rhubarb and custard' colours at the moment and couldn't resist using them again today. I used water-soluble crayons for the background and then stencilled over the top with distress inkt in similar colours. I splattered some black ink over it and used the same ink and some white paint to stamp the rings. Lastly I used 'fax to Wolfgang' to stamp some text. Next I stamped 'Miss Snottie' three times, coloured her, cut her out without her original bow and replaced them with real bows. I glued all three of them on the pages and lastly created the sentiment with sticky letters. To finish off I drew a line around the pages and used some charcoal around the sentiment and faded it a bit with a blending stump.
Thanks for stopping by !
Hope you like it .....
