Bicycles for Crafty Ribbons
This week at Crafty Ribbons Challenges the theme is BICYCLES! I love bikes. It's one of the things I miss the most, before I had M.E I loved to cycle. When my Mum taught my cousin to ride a bike I watched from my window taking photos... I've scrapped several before but I love them so have scrapped another.
I've used a cut file from like for ever, along with the July kit - care free. I added in a little yellow and white stripe paper from Suse Fish's kit too.
I made a flag for one of the bikes - because who doesn't want a flag on the back of their bike?!
I like to tuck in the little off cuts of ribbon to add texture a little pop of colour, but also to repeat the element of ribbon on the page.
For my ribbons - 3mm. Some grosgrain in pink and organza in pastel green and lemon.
Hand stitching on layouts is huge at the moment, I just don't have the patience though! Even the faux stitching with a black pen wore me down!
I have a process video so you can watch how it all came together. It's a little long than I aim for usually, I seem to take my time and faff around a lot!!
I hope you pop over and check out my team mates makes, and join us during the week with your own bicycle/ribbon creation. Thanks for stopping by!
