Button Canvas (Double Sided)

I know, buttons and more buttons, but I do have quite a lot of so many different texture and shaped buttons that I have collected for years, it seemed a shame not to use a few of them for this project.

I did show on 6th August an 8" canvas I covered with buttons, this sat on my craft room window sill.  I then had a brain wave and decided to decorate the back of the canvas as well, using a Mucha image for the inset, it is now double sided and I get a choice of which side to view and the neighbours get to see the other.

I painted all the buttons and background with black gesso (though you could use black paint).  Highlighted with Lummiere Halo Gold, Luna Light teal, and Treasure Gold Aquamarine and White Fire.
