Button...Button...Who's Got the Button?

Hello, all! This is just a real quick post about an altered canvas that I created for the Too Much is Not Enough challenge at and for the Punky Scraps Challenge 14 to use canvas. I had a lot of fun with this project because it let me use paint, which I don't use often, and some mists. I will probably do more of these. Lol!

Janie - Altered Canvas. I loved using all these buttons and coating then with paint to make them all one uniform color for a background. It gave me a blank canvas, no pun intended, for the mists I ended up using: Tattered Angels Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist, and Lindy's Stamp Gang Mists in Tibetan Poppy Teal and Wild Honeysuckle Coral. Some Prima flowers are in there, Tim Holtz metal photo corners, a bottle cap, as well as some foam Thickers all covered with Ranger Adirondack Pearl Paint.

Janie - Altered Canvas Close Up 1. You can see a couple of the Prima flowers. I used Modge Podge to cover everything and adhere it all to the canvas before painting over it.
