Cowgirl Up Canvas

Hello everyone!! Cheri here with a new project for you. I had some fun with a bunch of fun wood veneer pieces Karen at Southern Ridge gave me to make this 5x6 canvas. While I'm not a rodeo girl, I do LOVE horses so that's my claim to western fame... haha! That rhymes!

Now, bear with me as I see that I forgot to take another picture after I straightened that L out! Geesh! I obviously chose the wrong adhesive for the job and it leaned a little when I stood it up for pictures. Now in the next few days I will post a step by step video on my blog (oh and I'll prolly let you know here too! lol) of how I put this together and all the fun stuff I used to make it...even a few *what not to do* moments!! 
But as for what awesome Southern Ridge Trading Co. elements I have used here....

 First up is the word COWGIRL here I have painted it and outlined the word in white gel pen, of course I had to use pink!! And then there's the wood horse shoes and the wagon wheel, oh I LOVED those!! Now that BIG horse shoe is also from SRTC, but it was a fun extra, but I'm sure if you sweet talked Karen, she'd make one for you as well.

I just want to add that those gorgeous pink flowers on here are from PRIMA and I bought them at the great store in Kamloops Memory Junction!! If you're in Kamloops BC you MUST check it out! Tell Melissa I sent ya!

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you like this Western canvas of mine, and like I said, stay tuned for my video!! Keep crafting!!
