Button challenge

Ok this week, I shall be challenging myself to use some of my buttons!

Want to join me?

A very versatile embellishment - just adding a few to a layout can make all the difference you know.

I like to group them for best effect, but they can be used as centres for flowers, or even matting single ones on patterned or plain contrasting paper can make a lovely feature on a page.

For the larger and less colourful buttons, I have seen patterned paper added to the middles of buttons to "pep" them up. Colours such as black that may not ordinarily be used on a layout as they are because they are just "too" dark make good subjects as outlines for patterned paper.

So... now to make a few more pages to house my lovely buttons!
