I'm not really the right person who could give you the right answer, but
i can see buttons and other widgets are used only for a matter of
painting them the style they're shown in a normal GTK+ application.
Drawing GTK+ widgets just mean getting the style of the box and render
it in the graphics context.
Again, I never worked with graphics such as cairo and I've no minimal
knowledge of that, but having a graphics library for drawing lines,
boxes, text and other stuff might be enough.
