"Scrap for Help" April Challenge

This month of April at Scrap for Help, the challenge all month is to make something with buttons! I design for Scrap for Help and Shabby Cottage Studio. So, I made this piece with Shabby Cottage items!

First, I took a piece of corrugated board~

Then, I painted it with gesso....

I embellished the board with an image from Shabby Cottage Studio. I also used pieces from this fabulous collection of chipboard pieces, seam binding, coffee-stained cheesecloth, and faux flowers.

Here is the finished piece. (Yes, it probably looks familiar as it is on the front of my book Women: Blogging Can Give You Wings.)

If you need any art supplies, be sure to check out Shabby Cottage Studio and if you would like to join the challenge for the month of April over at Scrap for Help, just make sure that you create a project with buttons! The challenge will open in a couple of days.

I have included direct links to some of the items used in the piece down below.

Also, if you are looking for more FUN creative ideas, my ebook Mixed Media Art: Living Your Passion is filled with them and it is only $2.99. (If you click the flashing button on my sidebar, you will be taken right to it.)
