On Display


 I have the best time creating these display boards...
But maybe ....
I'll have a spell now LOL

It is a great way to pull all styles of buttons into one spot...
Sometimes it takes a while to get the board layout sorted..
All boards & inks come with a risk LOL
Too dark...oh why did i use that as a stencil
what is around that will break the picture up
I try to theme but then some that just goes totally out the window...
I say does that really matter....break the boundaries... stretch your creativity...just see what happens...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now I have quite a few houses on one board.........with sheep & birds & cats & bunnies...oh I forgot the dogs....


I pulled all the boards I have now completed onto the floor for their cameo shot...
ARE YOU INSPIRED YET ???

You don't need to fill the board with as many buttons as I do ...
As for me these are working samples...
but
they also can be interesting & fun 
See the first board ....
I had purchased a couple of these wood round boards & I have some from some years ago of my own designs.....
but this fitted perfectly around the stencil I had sprayed on this board...
I spotted a little crocheted flower...just perfect & a tiny bird button on top
In the left hand corner the word is Inspire... used as a stencil from a little pack of words I bought once..
so useful is that...!
Then at the base I have a few buttons in the garden theme & one word....
You could have less on some tags ....

See I never know how these will sort of sit ...
I grab ribbons & tapes & ric rac..tags of all sorts ( I love all of that & if any of you recall A Day In Paris Quilt I did years ago now I did that same embellishing but with bling crystals & mother of pear buttons 
 ....you see the things I collect ????.....



I know I am going on....
but I am on "fire " 
LOL
 No imagine these made on fabric...
Linen with it's rich texture.... some antique lace 
....what else ?
Stitcheries .... look even use some you have waiting for the project to arrive..
at the end or maybe before you begin .... get a large frame to house the finished project in...


Make Swags ...my simple way ...
add buttons of any theme ...just be mine LOL ohhhh how lovely would that be
