Heart with Buttons
With mothers day approaching i wanted to show you last years Mothers day gift from my girls.
Firstly they started with a wooden shape, added some ribbon, tule, feathers and fabric, this was all added with a tacky craft glue and a glue gun. Then various buttons were added, sticking to basic colour ways gold and black, and white. This is a really striking piece, and what a great way to use up all the buttons we have around the house.
Try using different designs and different materials, like beads, or shells or odds and ends around the house.

I made sure to edge all of the pieces when i was finished with them, with Veramagic chalk ink. This just brought all the pieces together.
Once I was happy with the design I stuck them all down on another piece of cardboard. I will one day add to a canvas when I have some time.
