Button Up Bracelet
This week is Button Week and I have made a bracelet using a couple of Grab bags of Buttons.
This is what I did
· I used the dotted star mask and applied grunge paste through the mask to both sides of my button pieces. I used the smaller buttons from two grab bags as these were a nice size to join with jump rings.
· When the Grunge paste was dry I painted both sides with cream paint.
· When this was dry I used various colours of treasure gold to colour and give my buttons a metallic finish.
· I now joined them together with jump rings, adding a clasp and a small bead to the ends, so if the bracelet was adjusted for the length when being worn, it would have a dangly end and look more finished, you can see this in the following photo.
This is my last project this month as a guest on the Tando blog and I would like to thank Di, Carol and the rest of the Tando team to making me feel so welcome. I have really enjoyed my stay here. Carol Xx
