Needlework before housework.


'Sewing and Buttons '
is the new challenge theme over at Try it on Tuesdays.
Lots of ways for everyone to interpret this theme, please pop over
 and see what we have all been making.





I used a Kraft card as my base. With some random stamping using an old hessian look stamped image,  this was also used on the tailors dummy  [A Tim Holtz alterations die cut].  A buttons stencil was used for the layers.

For  the top layer using the buttons stencil, I used a mixture of Blue  and Silver  acrylic paint  [Pebeo]with Glass Bead Gel [Golden gel medium] . The remnants of this mix were used on  the last journal page I showed you.
The trimming all came from my stash.



Thank you for taking time to stop by and see what I made,
 the comments you leave for me are always appreciated.
