In The Red!

... It's that time again... The Ribbon Girl colour challenge and being February the colour is red.
I started with a plain canvas... added a piece of patterned paper, knocked the colour back with gesso.. stuck down a piece of lace, made a frame with a Sizzix die and layered up ribbon, lace and buttons.

I framed the whole thing with strips of torn book pages.

Love the little birdie.

All the lovely trimmings can be found in the Ribbon Girl Shop.
and if you would like the chance to win some then upload your project here

This is beautiful Effie and I love your idea of using old book pages for the edging.
