I Love to Create: Cute as a Button Frame
I’m a quirky gal. It’s who I am; it’s what I do. So, it will probably be no surprise that I’m also a big fan of coordinating my frames with my photos. The challenge being however, that I can’t always find a frame to fit my photographic whim or if I can, they’re often not in my price range.
- Choose an aspect of your photo that you’d like to match colors with. It could be the blue of an ocean, the golden tones in a subject’s blond hair or, like in my picture, the orange & lavender from two little cutie pies’ outfits.
- Go through your button stash and choose coordinating shades. I dig the eclectic look of varying shapes and styles, but you could also go more uniform by using just one shape or color of button. Set buttons aside.
- Remove the back and glass from frame. Paint frame with desired color. Depending on the surface of your frame, you’ll likely need to either use a primer, lightly sand or, just use several coats of craft paint. Let dry.
- Decide what pattern you’d like your buttons to be in on your frame. Use Liquid Fusion to glue buttons down. Let dry overnight.
