Rainbow Canvas

A colleague at work has left to move to Cornwall. She and her partner and children are living the dream they longed for. I wanted to make her a little something to remind her of the time she worked with so many children in school. This is what I made...


I bought a canvas and some acrylic paints. I painted the canvas and coloured some pearls with Promarkers to match the rainbow. I printed the poem, drew boxes around the words by hand, cut each word individually and placed them onto the canvas. Finally I punched some tiny butterflies from off-cuts of card and placed them at the end of the verse.


  1. Ruth this is gorgeous, and so thoughtful of you - I am sure it would have been/will be appreciated

  2. Beautiful, Ruth, it's even better IRL. I know Sue was thrilled to receive it - she was pretty emotional when she showed it to me. xx
