This week both FFTT and Mixed Media Mondays (MMM?) have challenged us to use buttons in our artwork. I have a lot of beautiful, but really dimensional and bulky buttons. My favorite to use on flat(tish) collage work are these old underwear buttons from Germany. They are just round cardboard discs clad with white linen, simple and to the point. An added plus: they come on a pretty printed card.
I played around and made these tags. (Lately I have been making just tags, but double sided, so you can flip them. Possible use? Bookmarks, I guess. Or carry-along pocket art?)
I made two tags, but gave the second one to my sister before I had a chance to take a picture. Eventually I will show the second one here. Two tags for two challenges, fair enough.
