Welcome! If you haven't stopped by the May Arts Ribbon blog lately, you are in for a treat! This week the "Retro Color Themed" Craft Challenge was announced! If you haven't played along with one of these challenges yet, you MUST play along with this one!
You get a sampling of these lovely ribbons to play with!!! The challenge- you combine 4 of them in a project. So easy & fun, right?
As a Ribbonita, I got a change to play along with the challenge first.... just to provide inspiration for you :-)
Here's my project! I had SO much fun playing along with this one! The colors are so great and they just scream Spring to me.
I started with a 4x4 canvas, my ribbons, some Fireworks sprays and a Spring/Retro looking stencil. I never know where these canvas projects will go when I start them, but they are always fun to create.
I started by laying my stencil over the canvas and just spraying away with my Fireworks. As you can see, in the middle the spray bled together a little which is normal on these canvases, it all depends on how heavy you spray. It can be covered up, but just be careful with spraying too much or you won't see the stencil marks.
I had SO much fun embellishing this one! I just HAD to use all of these yummy ribbons.
I used a sticker sheet from Authentique's "Delightful" collection from last year... so I guess that's where my "Retro" comes in hand since the collection is now considered "old." hehe!
I wanted to tie it all together with this photo of my husband and I from our 3rd anniversary last year. The colors in the photo matched well with some of the ribbons, so over all, it all tied together nicely. This little gem is hanging front and center in my craft room!
Good luck and I hope you all decide to play along! More inspiration projects can be seen today on the May Arts blog!
