UPA - Eclectic Elements Column 2 - Botanical Bunting

2012_June Banner

This is the year of bunting, it has been everywhere in the shops in the UK, but particularly with the Union Jack on it to celebrate our dear Queen's Diamond Jubilee (what an amazing weekend it was and a fabulous concert outside Buckingham Palace).  We also have the Olympics being held in London this summer - the irony is that I will be in the USA for alot of that time.

My bunting is to fit in with the Unruly PaperArts botanical theme this month - Buds and Blossoms.



I loved making this and the shabby chic style that evolved.


Do pop over to UPA to see the full version of how I made this on my Eclectic Elements column.



Have you got something for Tuesday Treasures Blog Hop this week? Enter your special piece that you have been making and join the hop too.

See you soon.
