I have to say that this is one of my favorite projects ever!
I used lots of Distress Ink, Gesso, Tim Holtz tissue tape, and the darling little bird charm from 7 Gypsies. The real buttons were gifted to me by my friend Lisa, and they are layered over paper buttons made with a Martha Stewart punch. I bound the journal using my Bind it All. (love this tool!)
Thanks for looking, and have a terrific week!
