Months ago I re-covered 2 canvases with burlap (I didn’t like the creation from a previous crafty exploit).
I had two ideas for these two new burlap canvases, but couldn’t decide.
Many would describe me as having a ‘thing’ for butterflies and birds. Previous ramblings featuring birds and butterflies are testament to that.
Before making a decision between these two beautiful creatures, I wanted to see what they looked like on the canvases, so created them both in a kinda draft format (so excuse all the pins holding everything onto the canvas).
There has been a gap of three months between the first option and the second.
Rather than get my nickers-in-a-knot making the final decision, I thought I’d let my blog readers decide for me.
**MILD PANIC SETS IN ***
What if I am overestimating how many of you there are, or even worse, how much you care about my burlap canvas?
I have chosen to soldier on with the idea, despite this
major concern… I know you won’t disappoint (wink, wink… nudge, nudge!)
Ta-da…. Presenting the two options for you to choose from…
1. Butterflies – I completed the first option at Christmas and took photos of it.
I used a butterfly-punch to cut butterflies from old atlas pages, then pinned them onto the canvases. I did add a few metal butterflies (which I hand cut), for a little interest.
2. Birds – I completed these last week. I chose some very colourful quilting fabric. Then painted the back of the fabric with craft glue (to stiffen it, and to allow me to cut the fabric without it fraying – once it was dry). I got my bird inspiration from some stencils pinned on my Crafty Ideas board on Pinterest.
