I love your button creations, TSM!!!  You outdid yourself for a wonderful craftster swap partner!  I know it will be greatly appreciated, shown off, loved and kept to pass on! WOW!

I know you spent oodles of time on it but the results are tremendous! I hope to try something like this on a smaller scale...you totally rock!

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

This rocks, SO VERY MUCH. I love how you put little blue stars on top of the trees and all the various shapes/textures of the buttons. <3

Do you place figure out where to place all the buttons before starting? Or just grab and go, maybe placing the bigger buttons first and working around them? It seems like with the trees/stars, you would have to set them out first, being such a small area, but for the red background, you might be able to just 'wing it'. That might just be inexperience talking though, lol.

I would love to try something like this out for myself, the end result is so cool! Hopefully one day, when I have a ton of buttons...  Wink

((Also, to sneak a quick comment/praise in on one of your past projects; the button seahorse you created awhile ago is awesome!))

Longtime lurker.. so long, in fact, that I had forgotten I created this account until I tried to create it again. =P
