Jennifer: I mixed water with acrylic paint (equal amounts) and dripped some of the mixture onto the layout. Then I took a straw and blew the puddles in different directions. It looks a little like a blood bath (oops!), but it sure was fun to do. :)
Michelle:I went a bit crazy with this one and got very messy (so did my table top!). Starting with a bare piece of canvas, I layered lots, and lots of acrylic paint. Once dry, I added some graffiti-style lettering with a black sharpie. And if that wasn't enough, I used a few squirts of spray paint. A machine-stitched border finishes the page. I have to admit this style is a bit out of the norm for me, but it was very freeing to let go, get messy, and have fun! A play-by-play is blogged at Life Made Creations.

Here are the layouts created by our wonderful design team:
I stitched the buttons differently.
Here is another layout this time I used alcohol inks to alter the buttons.
I decorated these plain buttons with a white opaque pen before adding them to my Christmas goodie box. :) Easy peasy & adorable.
This is another altered button project I've done. I crushed buttons and used them to cover a chipboard shape. There's a tutorial on my blog if you want more info!
I love using buttons on my layouts. They give that little extra bit of homemade goodness and added texture to a page. For this layout, I stitched buttons as a frame around the patterned paper--cute as a button!
When dotting my i’s, I decided to give myself a little more leeway: in the word ‘kisses’, I dotted my i underneath and instead of the usual dot, I chose a button in the shape of a star. To complete the special note I wanted for that particular dot, I added a rub-on on the starry button. There are also many ways of crossing your t’s. Two square buttons can do just the trick. Add to that a large round button, and you’ve got an easy ‘o’. I sewed my buttons like I normally would and there it was!
I made big snow flake by white small bottons. The bones made wire at first, please see my blog if you want to know more details. Also I used glitter on some bottns. I think this way is nice for using a lots of botton was left over.
