Framed Art with Buttons Galore & More~

Hi, Connie here with Buttons Galore & More design team sharing a framed art piece using Victorian accents by Buttons Galore & More.  The themed button selections were the perfect accent for this framed art piece. The beautiful thing about these Victorian accent buttons you can change the color so easy.  Spray paint works great!


The frame was painted with acrylic paint and sanded for a vintage look and feel.  The inside piece is vintage dictionary paper stenciled with the word "create".   Black acrylic paint was used for the stenciling.  The flowers were wrapped with twine and adhered to the side of the frame with strong glue.

The Heirloom Keepsakes buttons were glued to the side of the flower cluster.  They come in several different colors.  I used the light green ones for this project.


The Victorian Rose buttons and the Gold Filigree corners were spray painted a pewter color and adhered to each inside corner of the frame.  The Filigree corner was attached first and then the Victorian Rose button next.  The shanks were clipped off, using wire snips, to give a flat surface to adhere.  The framed art was splattered with black and pewter paint.  That process was achieved  by spraying a puddle of paint, on a paper plate, and then using a toothbrush to splat the paint on the frame.  Old technique but still one of my favorites!

Buttons Galore & More: Victorian / Heirloom Keepsakes
Buttons Galore & More: Victorian / Victorian Rose
Buttons Galore & More: Gold Filigree corners
spray paint silver/pewter
vintage dictionary paper
word stencil
flower bunch

  3. Beautiful. I like the way you used the corners to give the piece a "second" frame. It really makes it stand out.
