For this finalist project, we were told to make our selection of ribbons from the May Arts catalogue and I had a great time swooning over all the ribbons there. I would have loved to pick one of every ribbon in the catalogue but decided I would exercise restraint and limit myself to pretty trims and laces in a vintage style and in cream and ivory tones.
Here are the ribbons I used in the project, together with Graphic 45's le Romantique papers.
And this is what I created. I altered a photo frame into a customized home decor in a floral romantic style. The frame is done up in pretty flowers, trims and lace and other embellishments reminiscent of a garden setting. There are layers and layers of ribbons, patterned paper and flowers and lots of texture created by the assortment of ribbons I used. I kept the colours of the embellishments muted in pale shades of cream, peach and mint, allowing the photograph to be the focus of the project.
The completed project:
The trim-textured background, the floral cluster and ribbon framing the corner.
The pearl trim peeking out from behind the garden of flowers, bird house and bridge.
Here's the video tutorial on how I created the project. It's my first video tutorial so it took some fiddling with iMovie to get it edited. Enjoy!
