Mixed Media Sunflowers

Can you believe it's the first day of March and we are experience temperature's in the 80's in Northeast Louisiana! Two years ago we had snow. Talk about Mardi Gras Madness!!

If you are here for the March Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog, this month is one of my favorite's - buttons! My mom still has a tin filled with buttons that I used to play with as a child. I would sort them and line them up for hours.  Our sponsor and guest designer this month is May Flaum. Play along and one winner winner will receive a goodie box filled with an assortment of 28 Lilac Lane embellishment mixe as well as a spot in May’s next online class focusing on embellishments! How fun is that?

Here's my creation with buttons.

I used patterned scrapbook papers on birch wood, acrylic paint, and buttons!
