I have had an incredible obsession with dandelions lately. I also have alot of buttons. So I combined the two Smiley
On my canvas I half painted and used tissue paper to glue it to the canvas. I really liked the texture it put on the canvas. I used glitter glue to glue it down and it seems to be holding up well but the glitter isn't really picking up on the pictures. Over all I used tissue paper, paint, glue and buttons





The glitter showed up best on this shot you can also see some of the texture the tissue paper let



Thanks for looking!

This is so imaginative, I love the buttons.  I collect all the odd buttons I can find for my own arts and crafts.

I love dandelions, too! You did a great job of balancing the buttons with the whimsy of the flower - very nice!
