May Arts Ribbon Design Team Call

If you are a regular visitor here you know I LOVE May Arts ribbon!!!  So when I saw the Ribbon Ladies post about a call for prima ribbonista, well you know what's next...

design team call

So grab a cup of coffee and have a seat...First I am going to share a brand new project and then a couple of other recent projects all using May Arts ribbon.

My newest ribbony project is this banner.

I started with canvas that I cut into these banners shapes.

I wanted to add color and texture to the canvas so I grabbed a Prima stencil and some mist.

I knew I wanted to use my May Arts eyelet but the white was a bit bright.

So I sprayed it with a Tattered Angels mist in sand.

While those where all drying I grabbed my wood letters...

and painted on a heavy layer of Distress paint in broken china, dried with my heat gun and coated with Distress crackle paint in clear rock candy.

I did some sewing and gluing and cutting of paper to assemble my banner.  Here is one of the flags up close.

May Arts ribbon used:
3 inch metallic gold ribbon
1 inch eyelet trim
3/4 inch twill/chevron stripes ribbon
Burlap string

And here are some other projects:

This post is round one of the call.  I hope you will be seeing a round 2 post in the near future!!
Wish me luck!!


  1. Gorgeous banner, Michele! You combined so many of my favorite things on it! Canvas, eyelet, broken china stain..... Love it!

    Your projects are all gorgeous and professional looking! I really hope she sees that and we get to see you in the next round and in the finals! Good luck!

  2. Good luck! Your banner is great, but my favorite is the layout with your nieces peeking out from the fence.
