Butterflies In January?.....

sad little caterpillar & some butterflies
So I didn't make it to the final round on One Month To Win It........that's ok, I had a lot of fun. Besides the entries for this last challenge (to make something with a bunting) were fantastic! You should still hop over there to vote in the final round next week. Well here's my last project that I entered......I covered a canvas that I had with some vintage sheet music. Then I made the bunting out of some lace,sheer fabric & ribbon that I had. Next I added some butterflies & a caterpillar. To finish it off I put one of my favorite sayings on it..."just when the caterpillar thought the world was over...he became a butterfly". I even managed to make some butterflies flutter off the canvas.  I like how this turned out, especially now, in January....(as I write this we are getting a snowstorm). I don't know about you guys but as for me....I'm thinking about spring!!!


all finished..
I will also be showing you guys what was to be my final entry in the contest, if I had made it that far.......Since you had to submit your next project before knowing if you were going to move on, I already had mine done. The next challenge was to be furniture....my Favorite!!!! As soon as I take some pictures I will show you guys :)you are talking too much

  2. I completely forgot to check out this round of 'One Month to Win It'.
    Sorry you didn't get through, but the bunting idea is lovely.
    Looking forward to seeing what you did for the furniture challenge.
