Typically I do loopy bows which you can see all over my websites and social media. However, I just decided that I wanted to try a new type of bow to me. I have a lot of ribbons that were gifted to me or that I bought in bulk that I had no clue what to do with it.

What you will need:

  1. 2″ Ribbon of your choice. (You will need 16″ for each bow)
  2. 0.5″ complimentary ribbon. ( You need approx 4″ for each bow)
  3. Alligator clip
  4. Hot Glue Gun

You will start out by cutting your 16″ ribbon in half. I then fold each half in half to make a crease I can see. Then I fold the two ends to the center crease and hot glue them. Then I fold the ribbon in half long ways to find the center and form another crease. After folding the ribbon like an accordion, I hot glue each of the folds together. (you can also you a small rubber band as well) Once you have both halves of the ribbon folded in this fashion, You hot glue them together by the center point. Take your complimentary ribbon and wrap it around the center of your ribbon and also around the clip you have chosen to use.

You can get fancy and use as many ribbons as you would like to layer, but you truly only need what I mentioned. And Enjoy!

Annual Mandala Collections

I did want to take the opportunity to say thank you to all of you that have stayed loyal throughout the years. Although this site is only a year old, I have been working on bringing content to you for several years. I really do enjoy being creative every day, and I love even more to share it with all of you.

Each year, I have decided that I am going to create a Mandala Collection that can be sold as individual prints, or as a set of 3 or 5 mandala prints. I have done this for two years in a row and I am gearing up for my third year. But before I dive into that, I thought we would go take a look at the two previous years so that you can see what I am talking about first hand.

Mandala Collection I – 2017

Take a look at the posts for each one below, it will give you an insight into what was going through my head while creating them. This was my first year and I was not sure of how well I would do, or if this challenge would be too much for me. The theme of the first year was using black and white on gradient paper. These pictures do not show true justice for the design, but I promise you they look better in person.

Mandala Collection I, Mandala 5

Not too shabby for my first collection, if I do say so myself. I learned a lot of things throughout the year and was able to adapt the second collection into something a little different, and yet similar.

Mandala Collection II – 2018

The theme for the 2018 year was using mixed media and triangles. Each mandala has an organic feel to them and yet each one is adorned with sharp edges. This collection also looks better in person, and as soon as I can get a studio area set up with great light, I will take better pictures to share with you.

Ok, so most of you may be thinking that I am MIA. Truth is, I have failed miserably at this blog thing. I love sharing all my creations and such and so much has happened since May that I want to share. However, It seems like I have too much to catch up on. So, if you would like to keep up with everything that I do, I usually post on Instagram when something new comes up and I am going to be diving back into the website here too.
