May Arts, Authentique and Imagine Crafts Blog Hop Day One




Welcome to the first day of the awesome May Arts, Authentique and Imagine Crafts hop.  I know you are going to have fun and be inspired all week long.  As always, we have some wonderful prizes to give away - 3  prize packs with goodies from each of these wonderful companies!  Leave comments along with way for more chances to win.

When I saw this cheerful patterned paper, I instantly thought of quilt squares and decided to add my own faux ribbon quilting.  I took a matching piece of patterned paper and ran it through a Xyron adhesive machine to put adhesive on the back side.  I then laid ribbons over the sticky part to create a piece of ribbon "fabric".  Then, I flipped the paper back over and cut strips that matched where I wanted to add the ribbons and adhered it to the base paper. I inked the edges of my papers with the Orange ink (Morocco) and then sprayed a little bit of the Tangelo Fireworks onto my craft mat, and painted the edges of the quilted ribbons to make them blend a little better.  I also sprayed the sequin heart with the Fireworks to match the color scheme.
