Rainbow Canvas

Good Morning to you all! Whilst i am away from the little old blog I thought I'd share with you something I made last year.  I was inspired to do an altered canvas.  My daughter's favourite dress at the time was this wonderful tie-dyed rainbow one, that we picked up in a market in Broome whilst on holiday there. Sadly it is now too small for her and is sitting in my sewing box in the hope that I can make it into something else for her!

Anyhow we went out into the garden one sunny day and I took millions of photos of her whilst she goofed around!  And then made this!

Each of those pretty darling ribbons is handsewn onto the canvas frame! [Yes it is true I do have a ribbon addiction!]  The sun was scraps of yellow fabric sewn together.  I handcut the photos and mounted them up on dimensionals.  The sentiment was printed on the computer, the boxes around the words were hand drawn, oh and the rain was hand stitched on to.  Have to say it took forever to make, but I absolutely love it!

Here are some close ups.



Just in case you missed it....I posted a free digi image a couple of days ago and a Challenge to use it and post the resulting card on this blog.  Would love to see some entries when I get back to blogging!
