Finished Buttons Finnnnnnnnnnnally

It's not that the buttons take that long but I do them in layers and each layer has to dry before the next is applied....so the paints are always out for a week when I start...all over our only table. But I just haven't been motivated this winter to paint. Hopefully I'll remember that before I drag all the paints out again....


I love to have a pretty painted button though to put on RRs that I do.... The rose buttons are about an inch and the cottage buttons are just a little larger. I couldn't resist doing Pat Winter's pink retreat cottage on a button.




They have been sitting around unfinished for a couple months and I could always find something I would rather do... Now that they're done I can do whatever moves me without feeling guilty (for a while at least.) and staring at the mess.


I'm excited about starting on Wendy's encrusted RR blocks. She had masks in the center which just said Venetian Carnival to me. I love working with a theme....

The buttons are beautiful. Too bad you don't enjoy making them more. Surely there is a great deal of satisfaction in the project when its done.

Are you going to Pat's retreat? I wish that she would allow a short time block for anyone that could not attend, but lives near, to meet everyone that attends, since we know so many that are going from their blogs. I only live about 25 minutes from New Buffalo, and wish I could have attended.

I've always had a weakness for house and cottage images. How wonderful that you can paint your own.

Gerry love the buttons! They are wonderful. Thats smaller than I would want to paint. You must have lots of patience to do those. But they are beautiful.

Pat Winter said...

I cannot believe you painted the PINK house on a button. Thank you so much for both beautiful treasures.You are so talented and thoughtful.
Hugs,Pat
