Mixed Media Monday - Buttons


In between art commitments today I have managed to do a little canvas for the Mixed Media Monday theme of "Buttons" (which I have just discovered has closed today already!). The canvas was painted with a beautiful green-gold (Goldens) and then dry-brushed with gesso. I have used a bigger version of the little girl image I used on my "house ATC" a couple of days ago. She is surrounded her with torn edge lace paper and a whole pile of white buttons (and a single green paper flower for a bit of colour!)

I have had a lovely day - it was extremely hot again (41 degrees) but apart from trips to the clothes line and some late afternoon re-potting of a couple of palms, I have pretty well stayed inside in the cool all day, mostly in my craft and sewing rooms. Such bliss - I got to work on lots of different projects, most of which are not finished yet.

Gorgeous, Debbi! It's really not too late, I just like to get the sampler up on Sunday afternoon, so I don't have so much to do on Monday morning :-) Glad you participated again. Diane
