Ali at Crafty Ribbons does a challenge now and again and I have been involved with three now.
This was the Colour Create challenge. We were sent a pack of colour themed ribbons and buttons, mine were yellow, to make some goodies with. My bits are near the bottom of the post. My sunflower bookmark was my fave make.
This was the seam binding challenge. Seam binding is quite thin and very versatile. I made a little picture frame with a fish and a bracelet with dangley brass beads. The seam binding was fun to play with. It takes inks, mica and paints, it distresses well and comes in loads of colours too.
And the last one was a button challenge. Possibly my favourite... I used to play with my Mum and my Nan's button boxes when I was a child - hours of fun! In fact when my Granma passed away I had her button box. I love that those buttons have stories behind them. Anyway, these buttons were orange and yellow and came in all sorts of colours and sizes. After just playing with them for ages I came up with these makes.
I have a budgie called Billy who comes out in my room, (well, it's her room really!) and she is allowed to play on my desk when there are no papers in reach (she likes to eat paper!) It turns out that Billy likes playing with buttons too...
Button in mid air to the bottom right of the photo post-fling!
Another button in beak pre-fling!
After flinging to the floor she'd peer over the edge proudly!
Most of them ended up on the floor but it was good fun to watch!
That's all for now,
