Welcome to another hop stop! May Arts makes these fun embroidered, eyelet ribbons. The term "eyelet" here refers to the openings made in the fabric from the embroidered pattern.
The embroidered scallop edges of the ribbon made me think of ruffles. It is also perfect for a simple spiral flower.
The ribbon easily soaked up the red Luminarte Radiant Rain. I poured the paint in a paper bowl and dunked the ribbon into it. Then I hung in out to dry: literaly outside on my deck rail! When it was dry I used a strong liquid adhesive to attach the ribbon on the dressform.
For the flower, I used a giant glue circle. Attach the ribbon on the outer edge and spiral around until you reach the middle. That middle makes a perfect spot for a few Swaroski crystals!
This dressform is one of my favorite surfaces for a collage. All the images come from our fabulous new Paper Goods. I covered the form with images adhered by a liquid acrylic medium. The images did not smear and the paper is light weight enough to mold onto the curvy surface.
Thanks for stopping! Don't forget to keep checking back during the day and hop over to the May Arts blog tomorrow for another chance at winning this prize package! ~ heather
