All buttoned up....

... JOFY-stylee!   I may have mentioned once or twice how much I love buttons.. & an idea/plan has been bouncing around in my head for a while:  make my own buttons...

I bought a bag of inexpensive wooden buttons that seemed ideal for what I had in mind - nice size, the colours of the printed design was quite pale & they were smooth - no ridges around the edge -  ideal for sanding off/painting over.. so I chose several & lightly sanded them to give the wood a key ready to be painted.

Then I had a look through my JOFY stamps... JM34!! Perfect!

I painted the buttons with JOFY Limited Edition Dusty Teal Fresco Finish Paint in various tones. Next I stamped (using JM34) and painted the detail... 


...and here they are...happy little flower buttons..


 now I need to find/make a project to add them to..

    1. Just to let you know that, to avoid those pesky spammers, I 'approve' all comments before they are published. :o) hence why there's sometimes a delay in comments appearing.
