Use Buttons

Use a button on your project is the challenge theme at Simon says Stamp and Show for this week.Well, i'm not gifted with a jar of buttons, that's why i made some of paperclay.
My project for this challenge is a bit of recycling, paper quilling, painting, stamping and i bring you some flowers, too.


You can always click on the pictures for a larger view (:o)



Well, here you can see what i've done....


The buttons from paperclay a stamped with the Ultimate Grunge Set from Tim Holtz before they went into the oven


These flowers are made from paperstrips in quilling technique.


I wanted to make a bunch of different handmade flowers. I also used DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint in Irish Moss, Pebbles and Dazzling Metallics in Oyster Pearl on old sheets of music.



I used a pet - bottle and cut the top off for a vase


The bottle is painted and stamped with DecoArt Gloss Enamels 




I used some strips of wire for floral stems


You can use the flowers as garden decoration, too (:o)

Hope you like my button challenge. Thanks as always for your appreciated comments.

Ellie...my goodness! You are so creative! I love how you've used the paper clay buttons! I love the fact that you even stamped them with Tim's Ultimate Grunge set before you baked them. Your use of the buttons not only for the centers of your adorable flowers but to also decorate the vase is really classic! This is such a clever and unique idea! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
