Just scrolled down to see when exactly I decided to make my button tree and it was scary: November 2012!
I made it yesterday lol.
Here’s the link to the original idea : Original button tree idea
I ended up grabbing a small canvas I had laying around and started making a trial painting with watercolors. I had never painted anything on a canvas, nor had I used watercolors since I was a kid, so I gave it a go. When I thought it looked acceptable (don’t really like the tree trunk, might try to fix it a bit later, but I love the background), I realized less is more, and even though my b/f had got me a big canvas for my tree, this little one, with less buttons, looked like the best option.
Just a quick recap for those that don’t feel like reading what’s on the original link: I’d play with these buttons as a kid. I’d sit on the floor looking at them and just making drawings with them on the floor. My granma kept them in a box. I loved that box, and after her death I was lucky to have found it.
Here it is, the final product:
P.s- yes, granma bought me bunny buttons 🙂
P.p.s- really need to fix that tree trunk
