Hello everyone,

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 :


Thanks for stopping by ! and I hope you will play along with me this week. Don't forget you can win a $30 voucher to spend in 
Just remember, no Digi's and only one entry per person per challenge... Hope to see your projects ! xx
