Altered Buttons

Counting and packing buttons can be tedious so I stopped to have a play. The buttons in the centre are the originals. I have coloured the others with stazon you could use any solvent ink, alcohol inks, pens etc.

 Some buttons are made up with separate pieces that come apart, just great for altering. These have three pieces, the smallest centre I have coloured with Stazon, the second piece I have coloured with a krylon pen the original colour was red or brown but I think they look like foreign coins when gold, last but not least is the photo frame actually a stamped Paper Artsy image with a clear glaze.

Bye for now, take care:-)

Romantic Spinoff

More layering and burning inspired by Sylvia's workshop. 

Made from an A4 sheet of card with layers of net, lace and ribbon attached with a bonding web. Melted the back with a heat tool, gesso over the top with the embellishments added last. I'm not known for pretty artwork exactly but I was chuffed with these cards.......maybe I should include them in a workshop of my own.

This is just a close up came out different shade.

Bye for now, take care:-)
