Button It Up!

I like to think I am on a roll, creativity wise.. well it is up to you if you think so, you may not! Comment all you like.. love reading them! As I mentioned yesterday I often look for inspiration when I am in a creative rut, by blog hopping all over the world. What a wonderful way to see it! This time my inspiration came from The Next Level, where this week's challenge was to use buttons and bows. I am not sure where this idea came from, but out came my stash of buttons, spent a couple of hours sorting all the greens and blues, and out came a bodice form that has been waiting to be decorated, and of course my trusty Glossy Accents! Forgot to take photos as I was making it..doh! I painted the bodice with Claudine's Studio Multi Medium mixed with a little tad of Sky Blue Studio paint. It did take a little while to dry, but once dry, I played with buttons, and ribbons and of course added a bow! Several sticky hours later, I had completed this!
This the front, note the 2 prominent buttons! They just pointed themselves in my direction! lol
The criteria was using buttons and bows! Did I get it right? Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
