I’m getting bits together now for the June button swap. The theme is beach, sand etc.It is fun to get the ideas and bits and pieces together and nice to receive a parcel; so far one from Oregon and one from Portugal. Anyone can join in and there is no on-going commitment; take a look here.
This is an old book illustration transferred to a piece of canvas with acrylic medium and then painted with acrylics.
This is not an advert for Boots The Chemists but rather a warning, if you know you are about to do something stupid, try to stop yourself. Listen to that sensible voice inside. I decided to make a print pad from a dried up embossing pad. What a good idea, and I would use a cheap blade not my good one. You can tell by the pic that this was not a good idea. After cutting myself I used a sponge instead.
The shell like stamp was made with Quick Print.

Some more handmade buttons. I bet you just know I’ll be moving on to a new fad shortly!


  1. Lovely handmade buttons.
    I looked at your link and would like to join in but I couldn't see how you jumped in.... could you explain it very simply for me? thanks

  2. They look gorgeous and thanks for sharing how you made them. Hope your "hurty" heals up quickly! Best wishes, Carolyn
