My ugly buttons

Hello dear friends!
I'm very excited and thankful to be invited back in Finnabair CT!
I'm looking forward to share my new projects and ideas with Finn's amazing products and I'm sure that it will be a fantastic journey for all of us!
Today I want to share an assemblage I created for Finn's blog with buttons and Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints.

I love collecting cute stuff like keys, coins, gems and alll kinds of
interesting little objects that come my way.
I've been collecting all these buttons for years, some of them are very old and I got them from my grandmother... So, I decided to create something with them.
Even I wasn' t sure how it would turn out, I knew from the beginning that I was going to cover them completely with paints, so I decided to chose all my ugly buttons and kept my favorite ones in the box.

Although it took me ages to find the right place for each one of them, I had so much fun playing - it was really like the 'TETRIS" game! You can watch the whole fun part in my video below :)

I used the 3D Gloss Gel to glue them down to a wooden base and covered everything with Heavy Black Gesso.

The most fun part of the whole process was to paint all these buttons with the Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints!

I really love how all these colors highlight the textures and different designs of the buttons.
I liked the result so much that I decided to add nothing more, even one single embellishment, but the tittle.

I used a chipboard word 'CREATE' and painted it with the White Crackle Texture Paste to add more texture and the Emerald Green Acrylic Paint, my favorite color shade.

To add even more texture to the assemblage I used again the White Crackle Texture Paste on several spots...
As my final touches I made splashes with all the colors shades I used before to color the buttons.
Here is my video with all the fun process. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did :)

  1. So pretty - it reminds me that as a child I would play with the buttons in the many tins at my Grandma's - a happy memory!
