This is my first post in this category! I have seen a lot of really cool button trees on Pinterest and thought I'd try my hand at a small one. I used a 5" x 7" prestretched canvas. I painted the base with acrylic paint. I used a black background then finished with an extreme glitter finish for extra "magic". I glued on various buttons and filled in some gaps with a few rhinestones. Then I had some flower iron-on patches and some felt flower buttons and thought they'd be a cute addition!




And...I've been sampling watercolors! I love them but am just a beginner with watercolor paint. So here is a couple different "sketches". I hope to improve so I want to "document" my progress here lol!




Thanks for looking!!! Cheesy
