DIY Day | Butterfly Cut-Out Canvas

Hello everyone! 
I apologise for my absence, I've been very ill and among numerous trips to the hospital and my boyfriend's band practises, I've not had a minute to sit behind my laptop and write for you guys. :( 

So the bad weather has most definitely hit us in the UK, it has not only been freezing, but soaking wet, and extremely windy. Boo, hiss. I love having snuggly days in watching Disney films with duvets and hot chocolate while it's cold outside, and on one particular day, I decided to get creative, and I'm really excited to share the outcome with you! 

My mum found some of her grandad's old sheet music, and has been making canvases with paper cut outs for a while in all different shapes, colours and sizes. She decided it would be a good idea to use the sheet music, so I jumped on the bandwagon and decided to have a stab at it myself. 

I put together this cute little step by step collage just for you, isn't it lovely? Ooh, check me out getting all collage-y.
The process of making the canvas was pretty simple, it just took a lot of time and patience, which is something that I don't usually have a lot of! However, I must have been feeling particularly serene that day to sit and finish this considering it took me a few hours to get the hang of!

Around two or three hours later, and the outcome was this beautiful looking canvas which fits perfectly in my room and that I'm very proud of! I had a lot of fun making it and it felt good to let my creative side out, and have something nice to show for it at the end. 
I know this isn't really very beauty or fashion related, but I thought it was too pretty not to share! I'll definitely be making more of these in the future as the colder weather settles in, so if you're interested in me doing a full tutorial on how to make one of these, do let me know! 

I'll be back with a proper post once I'm feeling tip-top again!
