I thought I would share some of the button pictures I have done over the last year and a half. I've included simple descriptions of how each picture is composed.
|Black Cat: Canvas Background|
|Anchor: Card Background on Printed Paper|
|Pink Rabbit: Card Background on Printed Paper|
|Blue Rabbit: Card Background on Tartan Paper|
|Sheep: Card background on card|
|Black Stag: Painted background on card|
|Ballerina: Canvas board background (second button picture I did, as a Birthday present for my mum).|
|Fox: Card background on Card|
|Squirrel: Card background on patterned paper|
|Belted Galloway: Card background|
|Black Stag: Painted background on canvas board|
|Hedgehog: Card background on patterned paper|
If you fancy making your own button art, you could start with a small canvas.
Print out an outline of whatever you want your shape to be, cut it out and draw round it faintly in pencil.
You could fill in the outline with paint if you are doing all one colour of buttons (making sure you don't splash) or you could just go ahead and start sticking the buttons on.
Which is your favourite? If you have any questions feel free to ask!
