I am the guest designer for ICRC11(yay!!) and I am so very honoured to be so.I found the rules to be a little difficult this time - CHALLENGE + TWIST - Create an Easel Card + Incorporate one/many/all of the basic shapes
I decided it was gng to be retro style so that I can add circles and circles all over.. But I also wanted to add some other shape..!! I was mulling over it sometime..Suddenly it stuck!! (Ours is a weaving family by tradition..I have seen my in laws weaving beautiful silk sarees with the yarn moving side by side.. it is a treat for eyes to watch!! ) Ok.. so I thought why not weave a pp or ribbon.. So here it comes, for ur view..
I gave a twist to the twist and made twisted Easel card lol..:)You can see how to make a Twisted Easel card here.Making retro embelli was another difficulty here.. I tried so many different things and finally was content with this..
PP are from the DCWV Prints stack.(available for sale in my blog).Sentiment itsy bitsy.The rest from my stash.
This tutorial applies for ribbon weaving and also PP weaving.
If it is a square weaving, you need to take a square card stack.. suppose, you want 5 ribbons in weaving and each of them are 0.5 inches, then you will need 2.5*2.5" cardstock and 3" ribbon.If it is rectangle, you need to increase the number of vertical strips.
Stick or glue the ribbon to the back of cardstock, on 2 adjacent sides.
Now, the first one will be a little diff to come by.. you need to take the first strip from one side and go over, under, over, under,over the ribbons in the adjacent side.
Similarly the second one.
Do for the rest of the ribbons.. you are done with ur weaving!! Small size will make a nice embellishment.. bigger one can fill up the entire bg!.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.. Thanks for stopping by.
