Hello ribbon friends. Today I’d like to share with you a scrapbook page featuring a fun masking technique made with the wide sheer ribbon.
I love the trend of stencils. It’s so fun and an easy way to add great designs to any page. I decided that the wide sheer ribbon would be a great piece to try this technique on.
1. First I covered my work surface with scrap paper. I laid my ribbon over it and taped the ends with a bit of washi tape so that it doesn’t move during my inking.
2. I then picked the stencil that I wanted to use. I have a 12x12 stencil from Heidi Swapp and I thought that the length was perfect for a scrapbook page. I sprayed my ribbon (with stencil over it) with Bronze mist and set it aside to dry.
3. After it had dried, I then added the ribbon piece on my layout. I layered some more papers and embellishments to complete my page.
Here’s another look at the finished project:
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you try the stencil technique for your next ribbon project.
