Ravishing Ric Rac : )

Well Hello there my GORGEOUS Bloggin' Buddies!

Sooooo I have some ric rac goodness for you today.....

It's Ribbon week at the AWESOME my2angels......and there is LOTS to show you on the Blog

Now I think ric rac is one of those things that we don't use enough.....

It doesn't have to be the main player, or focal point on your page.....but it's so fab for adding texture and layers....

Sooooo I have 2 layouts to show you guys....




I tied a knot in the ric rac.....just like you would with ribbon and stapled it on....



More stapling.....


Ok on to the second lo.....On this lo I've used a mix of Sassafras Lass papers & stickers, Woodgrain Hambly Transparency, Red Velvet Ric Rac, Red Twine, Scrapware Penny Farthing Chippy, Glimmer Glaze - Cowboy (on chippy, alphas & splats on page).....I've also used some FAB chicken wire that Tracy will have in the shop soon!



I have stitched the ric rac on the patterned paper & also stapled some on the banner....It adds texture aswell as depth to the layers....



Also used a little to accent the top of the page and balance it out...love the juxtaposition of the soft velvet ric rac with the hard metal wire & staples....



And there you have it folks....adding a little bit of something extra to your pages with Ric Rac....

Love and Peace xox
