Are you looking at your ribbon scraps and wondering how to incorporate them for LESSology Challenge #45: Ribbon Fantasy? How about checking out how design team member Yvonne Yam interpreted the challenge?

Hello there! I wanted to challenge myself to use up the little bits of black ribbon I had in my stash so I created a black and white mixed media canvas. :)

Black-and-white-mixed-media-canvas

The base of the canvas was created with diecuts from packaging material, old computer cables and Golden fiber paste used with Th Crafter's Workshop stencil. The whole canvas was then covered with black gesso.


White gesso was then applied to all the raised surfaces. Then I added some thin black ribbon strips in between the cables to create contrast. I also embellished the cable head with black glitter ribbon.


The blooms were fashioned out of ribbons too. Hope this has inspired you to create something for LESSology Challenge #45: Ribbon Fantasy.
