Button Day with Bo Bunny (Land of Wonder)

     Hello and happy  National Button Day! Drea here, and I'm so excited to be posting my third annual project for the FotoBella Design Team, celebrating this special day dedicated to BUTTONS! This year I dug into my own stash, to create this mixed media piece made from cardboard and the Bo Bunny (Land of Wonder) I Want It All Bundle from

     I love recycling pieces of cardboard, but especially the circles, like the large one used here, saved from a frozen pizza! The smaller one was leftover from a set of pans, and both started with a coat of Prima Marketing Black Gesso. Then I glued red, black, and blue buttons to the rim of the larger circle, along with some FotoBella Vintage Charms. Next, I covered them with a light coat of black gesso, so the original colors could show through. After it dried, I highlighted all of the texture with Prima Marketing Metallique Waxes (Bronze Age and Vintage Gold), and finished the edges with some red fiber.

     The smaller circle was given additional texture with Prima Marketing Patina Effects Paste (Blue). Then I added dies from the Noteworthy pack, rubbing the edges of the center one with some Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold). To resemble a button, I added some large grommets with my Crop-A-Dial II Big Bite, strung with some black and gold fibers.

          I overlapped part of the key die cut with the bottle, onto the larger circle, adhering it with some pop dots. 

     The other key comes from the Layered Chipboard. Then I finished the edges of the smaller circle with some black and gold fibers. 

     Thanks for looking, and shop for your Buttons and the Bo Bunny (Land of Wonder) I Want It All Bundle!
