Buttons the Faery Arielle

No comments
Hi everyone,  Angela here with today's inspirational post.  I was so excited to get to play with this image from the new release because anything to do with buttons makes me think of my grandma's button jar!  I used to love to play in it and imagine that I was finding secret treasures!

Have you ever had an idea in your head for a creation, that just didn't seem to come together like you thought it would?    Although I seemed to have something completely different in my head when I set out to make this, I absolutely love how this turned out.

You can find the image here:

I found the buttons on Amazon and absolutely loved the color combo so I decided to make that be my centerpiece with the image. 

I used a Dylusions stencil and Moonstone Nuvo Glimmer paste for the circle behind the image.   I cut a larger circle to mount this one to, and once she was colored up to match the buttons, I fussy cut her.   I then mounted her with pop dots and placed the circles off to the side so that just a bit was cut off.

Markers Used:
Skin: Promarkers- Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush and Almond.  Baby Pink for the cheeks.  A little Orchid for the shadow
Lips: Promarkers- Antique Pink and Baby Pink

Dress- BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18 and BG23
Buttons, rose and undershirt and tights: V01, V04, V06, V09, G07 and YG06
Wings: V01, V04, BG10 and BG13
Necklace: YG06 ( I only used the one color since the image was so small)
Hair: C01, C03, C05, C07 and C09

I then placed the buttons to frame the circles following my color scheme.

Once they were all laid out I glued them down with glossy accents.   I then added a few in the corners to try to balance the card.   

Once I was finished I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the middle of some of the buttons as well as her dress buttons and to the button on the rose in her hair.   I did this to add a bit of texture and color. 

And the finished product!
