Crafty Ribbons Challenge - AG With Ribbon

So my DT piece for todays Crafty Ribbons challenge is a layout.  I was looking at all sorts of sketches and mood boards and in the end I followed Scrap Around The World's mood board.

I took my inspiration form the metallic gold triangles on the pink pots in the bottom right corner.  I took my colours from the top left corner - gold, deep pink, dark teal, egg yolk - and I also used the chevron pattern.  I tried to get an ombre effect with the misting in the background but it wasn't terribly successful.  (I like it but it is not obviously ombre.)

I cut my fibre ribbon in to chevron/zigzags.  I also used some teal stained book pages.

Lots of gold misting behind.

I pulled out some triangular buttons (or these!), covered them with tombow multi glue and waited until it had turned sticky.  Then I covered them with gold leaf.

I also covered the top of my foam letters with gold leaf.  I left the sides black which highlighted their depth.

And there you have the complete layout.

  1. Laura, That is really fab.

  2. Nice layout Laura! Thanks for visiting me, that hotel hairdryer does look like a heat gun doesn't it! Trying to catch up, the computer is working but I can't find some of the software to load, and haven't loaded all that I have found yet. I suspect there is still something wrong with it, sigh. Yesterday I had an operation, my husband had some bad news on Tuesday and has gone to pieces so I have a lot going on. I have to take it easy for a couple of weeks now too.
