A bedecked with buttons bracelet
I received a beautiful Canvas Cuff from Maya Road recently that was just screaming to be decorated with sewing notions, buttons, etc. Anything that I could find in my colorful stash that would turn it into a beautiful piece of jewelry. I've been seeing a lot of necklaces and other articles like this in fashion magazines and I've been impressed with these one-of-a-kind treasures. I started by stamping script on the canvas with some IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko StazOn Solvent ink in the Timber Brown color.
Then I added a soft color to the ribbon using IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko VersaMagic Chalk Pigment Ink in the Pink Petunia color.
I went through my "stash" of buttons and ribbons to find some that seem to go together for the project.
I had purchased some antique button covers many years ago at Brimfield so I used one to cover the tiny button that holds the cuff closed.
I decided to model it on my antique brass door knocker hand. I thought that might look better than my old grandma arm.
Have a great day, thanks for stopping by to take a look at what I've been up to. If you have time please leave a comment, I love to hear from you! Talk to you soon~Renee
