Easter Celebrations at Crafty Ribbons

Hello!  Welcome to my first Easter Inspiration post for Crafty Ribbons.  It is all going on for the next few days.  Crafty Ribbons Inspiration has all the details if you are not yet up to speed.  It's all building up to a Bunny Hop on Monday  :)

Today I have a Spring Wreath to share.

I've painted the twig wreath with gesso and added some pale pink flowers.  I added a snippet of French Stamp Ribbon with the words 'je t'aime.'
I prettied up the flowers with some sheer dots ribbon, and added a hanging loop too.

  7. Just adorable!
    My favourite occasion to create for is birthdays - I love making something personal for each recipient, that's not necessarily tied to a theme.

  8. What a neat idea to make a little wreath - it's adorable and I love how you tied the ribbon. My favourite holiday to create for is Christmas - I make Christmas cards all year long and I love the sparkle and glitter that I use. I guess I could use glitter at other times of year but I tend to forget. I am enjoying your blog. Wishing you much joy and many blessings!

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
