Crafty Ribbons Easter Bunny Hop

Hello!  Happy Easter!  You should have arrived here at stop two of our Bunny Hop from the CR INSPIRATION BLOG.

Today's showcase of ribbons also includes a Bunny Hop, so if you have just popped by to say hello to me and would like to join in with the hop you will need to start at the very beginning which is on the
CR Inspiration blog.   Hop around the DT blogs in the order they are listed and leave them a comment. While you are hopping around please watch out for the lovely little bunny/bunnies which is/are hiding away and make a note of whose blog/s they are on so that when you return to the Inspiration blog you can link up with your name and which blog/s you saw the bunny/bunnies.....GOOD LUCK!

I bought this wire heart cage from Panduro a good while back.  One of those things that you buy thinking you will turn it in to a masterpiece and then sit and stare at for a few months!  Any way I thought I'd give it a whirl and used paper flowers from my stash to fill it up.  Now, I don't use tonnes of flowers so the few that I had were not the correct colour, so I got my inks and promarkers out and got messy and made them the correct colour!  I added diamantes as the flower centres for a little bit of bling.

The butterflies and the two banners are from the Chilled Cucumber Soup collection by Jilly Bean.  And the ribbon, perhaps my most favourite ever ribbon, is part of the baby washing collection from Crafty Ribbons.

I'd like to enter this project in to these challenges

  19. Hi Laura, I am doing the hop, and while I am here I will tell you that I think your heart is gorgeous and perfect for our Quirky challenge, thanks for entering!
    It is difficult to say which is my favourite essential tool, I guess my rotary trimmer is essential because I can't cut a straight line! I love my die cutter and use it all the time, so that could be it too! My ATG gets used on every project just about although I have a box of alternative adhesives. So which is most essential? I will say the trimmer lol.

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
