Arty Girlz challenge 16 ~ Buttons

This weeks challenge over on Arty Girlz is Buttons. so go check it out there's a some challenge Blog candy up for grabs. so go check it out.



Here's mine yep you got it another frame well i did get a pack of 3 you know so that meen's there's 1 left so you have been warned LOL.



I used Basic Grey Lilly kate paper and cute little vintage buttons, don't you just love buttons i do, not so much to actually use in crafting but if i see any in the charity shops or at boot sales i just have to have them, you cant beat sticking your hands in a tin of buttons and swirling it around LOL i know i'm making myself sound weird now aint I so best i tell you about the frame instead.



I painted the sides and back of the frame white then used it as a template to cut the paper for the front which i then glued to the front of the frame, i removed the shanks off the buttons and glued them to the front ,that's about it 1 altered frame the picture, and before you say it's wonky i know it is that's me being arty PMSL it actually looks OK in the frame like that , (shame my photography stills aint up to much) the picture is of my dad when he was about 2 years old, i just love all the old family photos getting a nice collection now.



Right i better stop waffling as i do want you's to come come back and visit my blog again dont wanna scare you's off...
