Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #34 - Buttons!!

It's time for a new The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge. This month we are creating mixed media products using buttons. Such a fun topic. Our Guest Designer and Sponsor this month is that FAB May Flaum. Our lucky random winner will get a prize package of May's awesome 28 Lilac Lane Embellishments and free spot in her next online class focusing on embellishments. I hope you will come play with us this month for this fun challenge!!



I have a nice stash of 28 Lilac Lane Embellishment bottles. They are so much fun. They have different buttons, beads, pearls and sequins!


I didn't take any process pictures because I was just having 
too much fun to stop along the way. But, I created the background 
using these PaperArtsy Fresco Paints. 


Here is my final project. It's a 5x5 pre-gessoed clay board. I used the PaperArtsy paints for the background and I some PaperArtsy stamps on the background and  to make the "road."
That cute camper is stamp from Just For Fun Stamps. Of course I paved my road with tons of 28 Lilac Lane buttons, sequins, beads and pearls.

  1. Super fun! What a great way to showcase the buttons (I reckon I could make a hundred of these and still have buttons left over lol).
