Flipping through Decorate with Ribbon by Leisure Arts I found a quick project. I took out a 9x12 canvas and painted it gray because gray is a neutral color. As I waited for it to dry I played with what ribbons that I wanted to use. April is Autism Awareness month and April 2 is Worldwide Autism Awareness month. So I chose a project that is called Ribbon Canvas. The puzzle ribbon which stands for autism. I also decided that I didn't want just vertical or horizontal I wanted to do both. I know that the book calls for burlap but I didn't have any in my craft stash and that is why I painted the canvas. I will have to get some over the weekend for any future projects. I want to do this on a cork board for the kitchen I am always needing to put thing up to remember them but I also have a three year old great niece that likes to rearrange my magnets and takes things off my refrigerator.
