Creative Fun – Mini Canvas Art – Button Love

Sometimes it’s nice to create something for no other reason than an impulsive urge and just for fun!

As you know, I love buttons and incorporate them (usually as embellishments) into my creative endeavours wherever I can. But here I decided to show them even more love and let them take centre stage.
I’ve painted a mini canvas and given it a bit of a grungy antiqued look with paint and walnut ink, a scrap of lace and floral paper, wording Love, rose themed ribbon trim and at the centrepiece are two buttons – one wooden concaved yellow and a luscious red heart. A coat of protective gloss medium was applied to the canvas after painting.
There you go!  Next time you get a creative urge, please do follow that impulse – you don’t need to be a formally trained artist or creative, just relax, go dig out your paints, magazine cuttings, buttons, fabric or whatever and let yourself just go with the flow……and have fun!
