Scrap Matrix DT - Mixed Media Button

Lydia back, to share my second project for the month. Now you all know I am a lover of bright colours as you have all seen with my previous projects. So I am guessing with no surprise to you I have used my favourite colours yet again.
Here is my project I made using a paper mache button.
First thing I had to do before starting mixed media I had to prime the paper mache button with gesso. I used gesso from my stash but you can find a variety of brands and types in the Scrap Matrix store HERE.
Than I used some of the Scrap Matrix metal trinkets as a stencil when spraying my favourite Dylusions Ink Sprays in the colour Bubblegum Pink and Calypso Teal. When spraying these two colours I made sure they overlapped so I could blend the colours to create a stunning purple colour.
I used some of the gorgeous flowers to give some dimension.
I also added some Micro Beads which come in a variety of different colours to add a bit of shine and texture.
To give my project a more of a sewing feel I added a metal zip which can found in the Scrap Matrix store HERE. I also added a few Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Stickers.
I hope you like this project and I will be back very soon with another project and hopefully I use some other colours haha.
