B is for Buttons - Scrapology October Challenge

Our Scrapology scraplift this month is by Laura Vegas.
My version is as follows:
I took the “numbers” paper and trimmed to the red outline (approx. 11”) inked and distressed the edges. I had blue bazzill in my kit which I gutted to leave a 1 ½” border which was fixed behind to frame.  I then cut a wavy line from the journaling cards paper on the stripy side (stripes vertical) trimmed to fit an added to the bottom of the page.
**tip – check the other side first in case you want to use one of the cards.

My photo is 6x4” and is mounted onto a piece from the “stripes” paper, all edges distressed again. I cut a variety of edges from the other papers, creating an edged border to the right of my photo and placing others under the edges around the photo.
I cut some chevrons free hand and mounted them on 3d foam, pointing to some words cut from a journaling card.

The buttons were stitched into place, some doubled up, some with bows tied through.
My title was cut using a quick kutz alphabet. Another button was added at the top of the border.

Pop over to the Scrapology for more details of the challenge.
