May Arts DT Try Out Round 2

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a fabulous day!  We are enjoying a slightly cooler day here which is wonderful!  We are off to a BBQ tonight which should be great!

For those of you who follow my blog, you might have read that I'm trying out for the May Arts Ribbon Design Team.  I've already made it to Round 2 and today, I'm sharing my round 2 tutorial and project with you.  I've created a video tutorial for a technique I made up called Fishtail Ribbon Technique.  It is inspired by the fishtail braid hairstyle that I used to wear as a girl.




I took my three completed ribbon fishtails (all made with May Arts stitched grosgrain ribbon) and made this canvas.  I wanted the paint to have a very rustic distressed look on the canvas.  I hope that I achieved that.  I spelled out the sentiment with some Thickers, added some flowers, and some rhinestones.

I hope you have a great weekend and please keep your fingers crossed for me!
