Trying out some new things and for the first time, I actually purchased black buttons! *gasp*
I have been wanting to do some girly hair portraits for a while so I found the right combination of supplies and felt encouraged to do it again on canvas as I had originally envisioned.I pretty much realized right away I had purchased my canvas a bit too big. And you know I’m… let’s call it frugal. I bought the 10 pack with a 50% off coupon and really got myself worked up over what to do about my mistake.
Of course, it meant another trip to the craft store! I thought maybe some watercolors could fix my situation.
I layered the background with several layers pinks and purples and embellished the bottom with lace, sequins, beads, and a fabric scrap stamped with the phrase ‘BeYou’. I purchased the stamp with this project in mind. I thought it was perfect.
So as Bob Ross said, “there are no mistakes, just happy accidents” or something like that?!
I’ve got a super easy project to decorate flip flops with buttons to keep you looking fashionable on the hot days ahead. Check out my very first blog post on Buttons Galore & More
I was thinking thru some ideas for my felt flowers and had a little help from a friend… Ok, lets be honest – she is really no help at all. I usually do little brooches but this time I wanted to see what the flower would look like in a hoop.
This is a little 3 inch hoop. I felt like there was too much space between the felt and the border of the hoop and had a crazy thought… add some beads!
I really like the way it turned out.
Excited to be part of Buttons Galore & More design team and can’t wait to create some fun projects.
Oh! In case you don’t know, I’m the one with the purple hair 😀
