May Arts Challenge: Tattered Lampshade Collage

May Arts ribbon is luxurious, gorgeous, and always affordable! I've loved the ribbon from this company for a long time, so when I read about their Calling All Bloggers challenge on the company blog, I knew I had to participate! I requested 6 yards of luscious 1 1/2 inch white silk ribbon, and 3 yards of sheer white rosettes for my project. I've been collecting tattered lampshades for a while now, and this challenge was the perfect opportunity to make the mixed media collage I had been dreaming about creating. You can view the full tutorial and lots of photos on the May Arts blog! There are lots of great entries for the challenge. Thanks for the inspiration May Arts!
