WIP's February's kit contains a sheet of paper called Flour Sack from October Afternoon that looks like batched-together ribbons, so an idea came to me and I created this layout. Since the sheet of paper looks like ribbons, I might as well cut them out as if ribbons :)
Here is a pictorial tutorial how I did the ribbons. I know I could use scissors, but I'm way too lazy for two snips! lol.
Here is a close-up look at the faux ribbons' edges. I used Helmar Zapdots to give a few of them some added dimension. I also intermingled a few pieces of real ribbons into the mix, just to add to the texture of the page. Overall, this was a page of experimenting with an idea and I like the end result and I will probably implement this again on another page in the future :)
It's almost Valentine's Day and we have nothing for someone who celebrates a birthday on that day. She really could have helped the matter by coming into the world the day she was due. As such, she will suffer a lifetime of competing interest of V day or B day... sigh...
