Here’s my take on our January Word of the Year CCB Challenge:

“Grow Spool Mobile”

Grow Spool Mobile

Canvas Corp Brands Materials: Birds & Bees On Ivory Paper, Spring Showers Printed Canvas Sheet, Ivory Burlap Flower, Light Natural Hank Hemp Jute Rope, Natural Canvas Sheet, Natural Mini Clothespin, Cream Hank Braided Rope, 7 Gypsies Princesca Crystal Hardware


My word for year 2017 is GROW – grow my family, grow myself, grow my job, grow my craft, grow my savings, grow my friendships, grow better everyday.


I used some gorgeous images from the Watering Can and Spring Showers collections, with Canvas Corp products to match.


I’ve added the Ivory Burlap Flower on the right side of the rope and then layered a butterfly from the Spring Showers Printed Canvas Sheet on top.


Some strips from the Natural Canvas Sheet are cut out and tied on the spool.   I then punched a couple of holes on the middle of the bird (from the Watering Can paper) and run the canvas from the left side through it.


To enter this challenge you need to link up your entry (link to the actual project – note the whole blog) by using the linkytool here or post on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest and leave the link below in comments and you will be eligible to win this amazing prize.
