Just For Fun challenge Blog mid month Inspiration

Good Morning bloggers,
I am here with my Just For Fun DT cap on with my mid month Inspiration for our current challenge.
This months challenge is Button's and Bow's, you can pop over and view the other DT's fabulous projects or to enter the challenge HERE.

I am currently re-decorating my daughter's bedroom in some lovely bright unisex colours of orange, yellows, blues, greens and a touch of raspberry pink so with these colours in mind I decided to make a canvas for Roslyn's bedroom wall following this months theme.
Here is what I came up with

The canvas is 16in x 12in so its a nice big size and I am over the moon with how it turned out. I cut a 12x12 inch letter R on the cricut in white card so that I had that as a template for the shape, got my glue gun out and just started sticking down the buttons, after a few hours and burnt fingers tips I had the finished letter. I then went through all my Co'ordinations card packs to find a colour to match to mount it onto and then I added the ribbon and bows down the sides.

white card stock from The papermill Shop
Canvas from Home Bargains
Co'ordinations from CC
Buttons from Do Crafts spots and stripes pastel collection
ribbon and twine from my stash
