Alphabet Challenge Blog DT - R for Ribbon

Yes that time of the week again - and March already can't believe how quick the year is going.

Well this week's challenge at Alphabet Challenge Blog is R for Ribbons!!!! I think this has been my favourite challenge so far cos I LOVE ribbon - I have a box full of ribbon and try and keep some of my favourites lol. I knew straight away I wanted to use lots of ribbons, mainly because it meant I wouldn't have to chose between them all.

I still had some spare canvases out, and decided to have a go at changing the canvas into a picture frame - it was so easy, just cut a cross (corner to corner) in the centre and I then folded it over and stuck it down out on the back leaving thecentre open.

I painted the canvas and then wrapped ribbons round the sides, added the photo to the centre and some card to cover the messy ends on the back. I'm so pleased with it - my favourite colours of pinks and purples and some of my favourite ribbons. Not sure if it might be missing some gems but I'm going to leave it as it is now.

Supplies: Canvas, Ribbons from Stash, Purple Acrylic Paint

Head over to the challenge blog to check out what the rest of the design team have been up to. Can't wait to see what you make XOX
