I pulled a middle page out of the Basically Bare Windows album and created a wall hanging for my little sister who's having a birthday this week!
I have primed the inside page with Art Anthology Gesso and layered up some 7 Dots Studio paper, May Arts Crochet Ribbon, Prima baubles and flowers, and Heidi Swapp stars. I love distressing things, having bits of paint and raggedy fibers all over my pieces. I strung some May Arts Crinkle ribbon along the top for easy hanging.
Here's a closeup of the clustering, I wish I could take credit for the gorgeous gold glitter on the flower, but those head honchos @ Prima are good! These alphas are also from 7 Dots Studio, the Domestic Goddess Collection. "You Are Beautiful" is a message that all women (and children, men, and whoever) need to embrace daily. Lately I've thought a lot about self image, uniqueness, and our places in the world and lives of others. And each person is truly beautiful. I know my sister can use a reminder, and I'm hoping she hangs this right above her bed, so she sees it every day when she wakes up.
This is a REALLY great shot of the May Arts Crocheted Ribbon. It's actual like .. crocheted thread fibers that can easily be snipped and grunged up a little bit. It comes in a MULTITUDE of colors and is just perfect. Happy Birthday little Sis :)
If you're here via my FB page or blog subscription, you'll want to head over to May Arts all week and see what the other Ribbonistas and teams have put together.
