Oh, I enjoyed making this one...
I know it's not an original concept - the four seasons artwork has been done many times before but I still enjoyed interpreting it my way. I started out with a four pack of mini canvasses, each painted a different shade of blue.
I then painted on a very unrealistically shaped tree! I needed an even spread of branches to attach my button leaves to, so following the shape of a real tree didn't quite work! I sorted through my button stash and pulled out blossom pinks and spring greens; rich leafy greens; and autumnal oranges, yellows, reds and browns. I attached my buttons with matte gel medium, but any strong glue would be okay.
My favourite touch? The autumn leaves that have dropped from the tree!
You can find a huge selection of buttons here!
