Quilled Breast Cancer Ribbon

A friend of mine had previously gone through breast cancer. Since then, she has participated in the Relay for Life to celebrate her win against that battle and to help raise money for others. She asked if I would make something for her to auction off, so I did.

I decided to paint an 11×14″ canvas with pearlescent pink and opaque, glittery paints. I applied them by dabbing with circular sponges except where I had applied vinyl cut outs for the words, hearts, and ribbon. Once it had dried, I peeled off the vinyl and I used 1/2″ hand cut strips to outline the ribbon and 1/8″ precut quilling strips to outline the words and hearts. I then filled in the Ribbon with flowers and swirls, while using the beehive technique to fill in the hearts  and words. I then used the glitter paint to go over the top of the quilled parts to give them a sparkly effect as well.


I hope you love the way it turned out, and I hope this helps a great cause. Too many people I know have had to fight some type of cancer…
