Buttoned DownCreate a graphic statement with a canvas outfitted with oversize wooden buttons. First, paint the buttons with crafts paint; let dry. Apply white acrylic paint to the canvas in vertical brushstrokes. While the paint is still wet, add a few gray lines and blend the colors to create a striated appearance. Tie the buttons to the canvas with twine. Staple the twine to the back of the canvas stretcher frame to secure. (Source unknown)




To make chevron art like this one you’ll need a frame, paint, paint chips and glass. If your frame comes with an ugly background picture, use white paint to cover it up. Then cut out the chevron shapes from the paint chips and then stich little scrapbooking square pieces to the back of the cut outs. Add glass to the frame and you’re done.{found on lovehuedesign}.
