Art Anthropology/ Basically Bare Blog Hop

Welcome welcome! I had such fun playing with Art Anthology and Basically Bare. As a quick reminder go don't forget to make comments on both ....sites for your chance to win one of 3 prizes up for grabs of: 1 spool and $25 worth of good each for Art Anthology & Basically Bare.  Winners announced Monday.

It is always fun to get outside my box and let my work flow in a new direction. 
After stamping on a cork sheet I covered the face of the album to make it feel like a bulletin board. Since I was already stamping on non traditional surfaces I stamped on canvas to make a measuring tape as well (although if you have a little 413-34-07 Tape Measure that would be even easier!)

I am totally excited to keep this project planning and pattern theme going in this fun album.
I spray dyed the while silk ribbon using Coloration Spray, soo simple spray and let dry. For a more even color moisten your ribbon first then spray it will obsorb more evenly, I kinda dig the ombre chambray look that I achieved.
Here is what I used.

1 1/4-inch Silk Ribbon - SK01 - WHITE
5/8-inch Lace Ribbon - 390-58-09 - IVORY
