Today is my day to show off my challenge piece for the ribbon challenge over at The Hobby House. With all the ribbon available in the shop took ages to decide on what to create but then I spied a polystyrene ball and that was that!!! I used 3" wide cream ribbon to create the ruffle effect by sewing a long running stitch down the centre of the ribbon (8 metres) and pulled it to create the ruffle and pinned it in place with small pins into the polystyrene ball. Added some little ruffle flowers, wrapped pink ribbon round the wooden stem and here it is.....
Hello, I'm Polly.
I love altered art, cardmaking, ATC's, in fact anything that needs gluing, stamping, inking or cutting is just my idea of heaven!!!!
I am pleased to say that my husband of 7 years is extremely tolerant of my crafts, especially as I tend to spread from one room to another,well aren't all we all a little messy when we're being creative!!
I like to incorporate all kinds of embellishments in my work especially lace, ribbon, butterflies, angels, hearts etc in fact anything pretty and girly. I soooo love pretty and quirky pieces of art. I was lucky enough to see Tim Holtz in the flesh recently - seeing him was just fantastic. It was only a one hour demonstration but its amazing how much inspiration you come away with.
I hope you enjoy my blog
