Beautiful Wall Hanging

Hi hihihihi!!! The May Arts Ribbonistas are swapping with Basically Bare and Art Anthology in a giant beautiful .. well .. 3 way :D



We're combining ribbons, paints and bases and giving things away! THREE prizes that consists of 1 spool of ribbon, $25 of Basically bare and $25 of Art Anthology, EACH! Comment comment comment ♥

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.

  2. Love the natural feel of the raw cardboard and the tattered crochet ribbon. nd yes Prima definitely does know and do gorgeous flowers and more. Beautiful piece. I bet a grunge version would be awesome also with some of the top layer of cardboard stripped away and some gesso and or paints or sprays layered in the groves.
