Fall Ribbon Tree



My first project for Practical Scrappers was to make a layout featuring 3 different ribbons.    I adore ribbon anyway so this one was fun!  I divided my 12 x 12 cardstock into three sections:   in the first, I put vertical striped paper, the middle is a blue cardstock, and the third is horizontal striped.  I used red rickrack as one border and a brown stitched ribbon as the other.  I then added a moss green thin strip of ribbon down the middles of the patterned paper for interest and dimension.   I cut an 8" tree from Stretch Your Imagination......added interest with a gold gel pen and 3 different colors of brown inks.   I took bits of red, yellow, brown, and orange ribbon....folded them into "v" shapes and attached them to the tree for leaves....trimmed them out with buttons.  Used the maple leaf from Stretch Your Imagination....cut on shadow and regular, in sizes ranging from 1 1/2" to 2 1/2".....gel pen and ink for definition and scattered them all around the left side of the page.  And for Meg Beauchamp and Frosted Designs, I added a little sticker owl I had in my stash.

I love the combo of the tree with the ribbons. Very nice. And the leaves are a great touch of movement on the page.
