Crafting with Medal Ribbons - Brit Chic Wall Art



I may be the only one, but I'm loving crafting with medal ribbons, mostly because it makes me feel like a WINNAH! but also I can't help being drawn to the ole Red, White and Blue ;)

Now, I love being surprised, and messing around with medals sat in front of the telly, this scrappy star project  morphed itself into a Union Jack, so I'm feeling pretty creative AND patriotic to boot!



In residence in my hall way next to my fabulous $5 thrifted mirror.



Andddddddd, I don't usually ask questions on my blog because I'm super nervous I'll look like a tool if no-one replies, (true story) buttttt I found out that my local hang out the Edmonton Reuse Centre has a Recycled Art competition and I'm thinking of entering this project.

Sooooo Whaddya reckon, (dons black Polo Neck and jaunty Beret) ''It's cute non, but is it Art?''

It's a fabulous piece and I'm glad you entered it. It can be unnerving to put yourself out there, but why keep your talent to yourself? :) Amazing work! Thanks for linking up to POV.
xoxo,
Amy
