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.
