Beads, Buttons and Bows

This week is 
Beads, Buttons and Bows.

Well this is my tag for this week.
A few week's ago I saw a great video tutorial on 
Helen's Blog at  Craft Project
Showing you how to make 
Beaded and Buttoned Heart's.
The tutorial was great and when I saw this week's 
tag theme I wanted to have ago.
I had already made some Shrink plastic Buttons 

early in the week and some gear's. 
So with a few beads and buttons, 
I had already I set about having a go :) 
I'm pleased with how the heart came out for my first go.
glue the heart it onto my tag based 
which I painted and stamp with Fresco Acrylic Paints.

So I hope you like my tag and I am off to see 
what all you have been up to with your 
tags this week.
