Sarah Hurley Challenge: Buttons
I am here to show you the project I have made for Sarah Hurley's Challenge 'Buttons'. I wanted to try and do something new to get a start on my Christmas presents! I used Sarah Hurley's Wonderland CD, a plain canvas, distress inks, mask, and genuine vintage buttons.
I started by creating the background with sponging distress inks over a mask with make up sponges from the pound shop-the canvas texture eats away at the sponge so its advisable to use one you can throw away after the creation. Next I distressed the bingo cards from the CD, and printed the Alice and White Rabbit images. I cut round the images and placed them in opposite corners, then added the bingo card and vintage buttons as playing pieces. I then added buttons to each corner of the project which didnt have an image.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Forever Friends: Something Old, Something New (Vintage buttons, Mask)
Divas By Design: Monochromatic
Deep Ocean Challenges: Vintage
Everybody Art Challenge: A little present
Paper Sundaes: Digital Images
Fussy and Fancy: Make a Gift
Do You Stack Up: Splash of Blue
Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments :-)
