Make Easy Victorian Framed Art with Themed Buttons!

Hi, Connie here with the design team sharing a Victorian framed art piece using Victorian accents by Buttons Galore & More. The themed button selections were the perfect accent for this framed art piece. The beautiful thing about these Victorian accent buttons is that you can change the color so easily. Spray paint works great!

The frame was painted with acrylic paint and sanded to create a distressed finish for a vintage look and feel. The inside piece is vintage dictionary paper. I stenciled the paper with the word “create” in black acrylic paint. The silk flowers were wrapped with twine and then adhered to the side of the frame with strong glue.

The Victorian Rose buttons and the Gold Filigree corners were spray painted a pewter color and adhered to each inside corner of the frame.  The Filigree corner was attached first and then the Victorian Rose button next.  The shanks were clipped off, using wire snips, to give a flat surface to adhere them.

To finish my Victorian framed art, the frame was splattered delicately with black and pewter paint. That process was achieved by spraying a puddle of paint, on a paper plate, and then using a toothbrush to splat the paint on the frame. It’s an old technique but still one of my favorites!
