I was lucky to be able to spend some time during these summer holidays with my lovely grandchildren crafting, they made a great job of gluing the buttons to frames then covering with gesso I had provided black and white gesso for them to choose which one they preferred. 

Amber with her White Gesso highlighted Button Frame with Red and Gold Inka Gold Gilding
They used Inka Gold to highlight raised areas.  There were plenty of buttons left over and my grandson covered another frame later that day, leaving the buttons unpainted as he liked and wanted to see the various colours.
Jay's Button Frame with Black Gesso highlighted with green and copper Inka Gold

You can see a few charms embedded between the buttons, just to add a bit of interest.  I think they enjoyed making these as the day before we had used eggshells to decorate a frame. Until next time....

  1. Amber and Jay made fantastic frames and love the froggie charm in Jay's frame!! I love it when the grandchildren want to craft. Our grand daughter wants to try the metal house next time she comes so she will have fun with that, she loved her notebook that I made for her birthday :)
