43. Painted Button Heart Canvas

My Valentine crafting obsession continues! This project began with some bulk buttons glued onto a canvas with Aileen’s clear craft glue. I let it dry overnight. Then I gessoed everything and painted it pale pink after the gesso dried. I decided to spray a few coats of both brown and red walnut ink onto it, wiping off some of the excess but letting the ink seep into the little crevices around the buttons. I painted the edge of the canvas light brown.  I may work on it a bit more; I’m not completely happy with it just quite yet!
