  May Arts will be offering two prize packages of winner’s choice of 2 spools of ribbon!  So, how do you enter to win a chance at one of these grand prizes? Hop through with us and visit each designer’s blog and leave a comment on their Helmar and May Arts Blog Hop post. The first winners will be chosen on the 21st and the second winners will be chosen after the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend! So let’s get started!
Here is my project using Helmar Adhesives and May Arts ribbon! I made a wall hanging using Basically Bare canvas, felt and chipboard, book paper, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products, May Arts silk ribbon and Helmar Craft & Hobby PVA glue and 450 Quick Dry Adhesive.
 I covered the chipboard page with map paper using the Helmar Craft Glue, added a doily and then covered a mini canvas with book paper also using the Craft Glue.  I glued the canvas down with the 450 Quick Dry adhesive.
 The wings and canvas were colored with Faber-Castell Gelatos.  I glued the fabric and felt down with the 450 Quick Dry adhesive.  I added the silk May Arts ribbon as the hanger here.   The silk is beautiful and makes gorgeous bows!

I hope you enjoyed my little project and will follow along with the blog hop for a chance at winning one of those awesome prizes!
Day 1 – November 19th
Day 2 – November 20th
