May Arts ribbon design team call


Morning my lovely followers and friends
hope your having a fab week 
This post is for the DT call for May Arts ribbon written/video

I would love to do video tutorials and have many on my You Tube Channel.

My first post is a crochet ribbon basket with 2 colour ribbons, white satin and gray organizer. 




2nd post is a mini album I made from scratch using my new prima Stationers Desk A4 papers and some ATC bits I have.
The tags are ATC papers and card the frame is also from the ATC collection.
I used ribbon for holding the pages in place and the yellow flowers on the front are ribbon flowers.
I used ribbon on the tags inside the mini and as the fastener.







My 3rd project is an altered wooden spoon 


First I took 2 sprays Lilac Night and Aqua Lagoon and spritzed a bit on to my mat, it only needed one squirt of each colour.
Then using a make up sponge dabbed it all over the spoon.
I used Aqua first and it seems a greenie/blue 
Then dabbed a bit of the Lilac here and there.





Then I used a Versa Mark ink pad and dabbed it on bits of the spoon then added some Meltdust which is like embossing powder.
Then I heated it up.





Before I added the feathers I was going to wrap ribbon around it but changed my mind LOL.
So I added some feathers with hot glue, then I wrapped a bit of gingham ribbon around a small bottle then hot glued it on to the spoon.




I glued a mini tinkerbell charm so it looks like she's been let out the bottle.




I added some more feathers and a bit of ribbon with (all my love) on it.




I added another tinkerbell at the bottom of the bottle,like she has let the other one out.
Next I added a bow to the gingham ribbon below everything.

I do hope you enjoyed this tutorial, as you know I do love doing them.
So thats me for now.
Thank you for stopping by.
Big Hugs & Love.
