"Summer Sunset" by Tracey Sabella

It's Friday, the final day of the RRR Pre-Labor Day Sale. Go here for all the details and to get your coupon code to use at checkout.

Hi, it's Tracey here to share a new project with you featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon and Bonnie's new Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Flowers.

Each season has its particular beauty, and a summer sunset at the beach has its own special glory. This photo was taken last summer when Gary and I went to the East Coast for our 30th anniversary. One evening we went to the beach and boardwalk of Atlantic City. The Boardwalk held little attraction for me, but the beauty of the sea was just amazing.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Products:

Tips and Techniques: 
I created this triple loop bow with Sheer Iridescent Blue/Green Organza Ribbon by May Arts. I used a variation of Ginny's Double Loop Bow Tutorial found here

Included in my cluster are some of Bonnie's new Wild Orchid Crafts Mulberry Flowers which are a new offering at RRR. Here I've used the White Sweetheart BossomsWhite/Cream Cherry Blossoms, and the White 30mm Wild Roses

Here you can see another of the Sweetheart Blossoms tucked in with a Petaloo flower and Spellbinders Foliage leaves that remind me of seaweed.

I painted the leafy DA chipboard flourishes with several shades of metallic Lumiere paint, then added some gold Shimmerz Blingz to highlight. 

Here's a recent layout I created for Donna Salazar Designs that included ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store.

"Timeless Love"

You can see I used the Sheer Iridescent Champagne Ribbon to create a double loop bow and to weave through the punched doily design. 

Now hop on over to the Really Reasonable Store to pick up your ribbon, flowers, and more. Don't forget, today is the final day of Bonnie's Pre-Labor Day Sale. You have until midnight EDT to use your coupon code.
