May Arts DT Call

Hi everyone, did you know that May Arts is having a DT call?  I am super excited because I would love to work with Bethney and her team.  And, having a wonderful supply of beautiful and amazing ribbons on hand wouldn't hurt either!!!!

My samples for the call include:

Envelope card
Used a legal envelope and decorated with Authentique papers and Prima Doll stamp.
May Arts Ribbon was used where the papers were joined together before adhering to the envelope.
Used a circle punch to punch the front of the card where the card in inserted.
More May Arts Ribbon was used as the card pull and a gift card was added inside the pocket.

Grandma's Trunk
Painted a little wood box and put everything inside you'd think you'd find in Grandma's trunk - jewels, purses, shoes, doilies, flowers and more.
May Arts ribbon adorns the edge of the box as well as the dress form and latch.


Summer Album

I decided to take apart the album before working on it because I wanted the papers to be closer to the edges.  Since I have a Zutter Bind-it-all, it was very easy to reassemble.  Plus, because you can take it apart, you can put it back together  any way you want!!!!!

This album is full of assorted sized pages in canvas, chipboard, corrugated board, envelopes and acrylic.

Some May Arts mesh  was tied around the acrylic page which was finger painted with Art Anthology’s Copper Sorbet, and more  mesh  was tied around a paper covered envelope.  Rub-ons were scattered about the pages.
On the back page, I adhered some May Arts burlap ribbon.  Note to self – I think adding a few sea shells amongst the burlap would really add to the summer theme.

I used Art Anthology’s Colorations in  Peacock Feathers and  Waimea Bay to color the canvas, using the Basically Bare Paparazzi Embellies as masks on the canvas.  I’ve put the Embellies aside for other projects. 

There is a wonderful pocket page included in the album.  I covered it with pattern paper and added some May Arts burlap and placed some summer phrases on top. 

Using more  mesh  , I scrunched it up and adhered it to the corner of the next page.  Slip a photo underneath for a fun and funky look.  There are plenty of spots to add photos in this album.

The double front doors were layered with lots of papers and all kinds of summer phrases.   Then lots of May Arts ribbons were tied to the binding – all summer colors in a variety of styles and colors and sizes.  Some of the ribbons include: Iridiscent, Ombre, Polka Dots, Mesh, Sheer, and OrganzaMay Arts has such a wonderful collection of  ribbons to create some amazing projects.

Thanks for stopping by today.
