Steve and I love to venture out and about around our town and find little gems for our home. Today we found this painting, so beautifully displayed in its very own frame. The moment I saw this elegant painting, I knew it was the perfect fit for our home! I just love the simple sophistication of the woman casually resting against a wall in a lush rich red gown with a refreshing cosmopolitan in hand. This painting was a perfect addition to our little home!
I have loved reading Elsie's new book! It rocks, in my opinion. I love all of the ideas she provides and mainly the fun inspiration. Well, the buttons shown in this photo were inspired by a page in Elsie's book where she made buttons from clay and then painted them with regular acrylic paint. Well, that is exactly what I did. So simple! It was so much fun to play around with different sizes and designs. It was especially easy to pop them in the oven for 15 minutes, cool and then pain and decorate. Such a great project that was out of the norm for me. I already have several of these buttons included in a page I just started this evening! The clay is super cheap and you get and endless supply of uses out of what is included. Really, the creativity here is endless with this fun project! I hope you try it too :-)
