Last spring I purchased a shabby, antique button with two Scottie dogs in the design. (Yes, I'm a Scottie dog lover.) My plan at the time was to paint the button a single color, red, and place it against a tartan, paper background. I now concede this plan was far too simple and unimaginative. Instead, I thought I should step outside my comfort zone and try my hand at giving the button a proper refresh with a few different paint colors.
Not only has the button been transformed, it's found new purpose in a glass, dome paperweight.
