You have until 1 am central time on April 22nd to complete the hop. Have Fun and Good Luck!
For my new technique I worked with Essential Gelatos by Faber-Castell . I loved working with them and want all of the colors now ! LOL!  They are very creamy and blend so well . I was able to layer colors on multiple surfaces .
I used the Steampunk Shape Set from Gina's Designs.
The Gelatos  cover the raw chip board  so well . I base colored all the pcs. with black
and then added the silver or gold. Then to finish it off I watered down the white and let
it drip down the pcs.

I recycled a ribbon spool for the base .
I colored it with the Black and highlighted with the silver. 

The flowers are from Paper Mart. They started out white,
I colored them with a Teal Copic marker. Then I started layering the
Gilatoes on with a paint brush and water.

I added a little bit of black tulle  and I did a few flowers with the  black, white and silver.

I layered the wings to the dress form.

Your next stop on the hop is Dawn   If you get lost along the way, here is a list

May Arts Ribbon Spring Craft Challenge

Hi all,
I was one of the lucky 20 that got to participate in the Spring Challenge !
I had so much fun creating with the awesome ribbons I received .
May Arts was very generous with all they sent to me ,I still have ribbon left :)
My project was 2 altered spools here a few photos-
I made the nest  by taking apart a strip of the Burlap ribbon
and then shaped it into the nest
I used chip board Butterflies from

The other ribbons that I received were
Green Leaves
White eyelet
Teal string
and the Natural Burlap

I also used my favorite Dollies from Gina's Designs
Pettaloo Flowers  were used in the nests.

On the smaller spool I added a long strip of paper to add photos to
used a velcro dot to keep the paper rolled up.
If you go on youtube you can find several samples of the photo spools
and Bona has a spool with beautiful ribbons in place of the paper.

If you go to May Arts Blog you can vote for your favorite projects. Here is the link . Congrats to all crafters !
