For lack of motivation or inspiration lately I thought maybe a challenge would help get me moving. Mixed Media Mondays Challenge this week is Buttons, perfect for me, since I like to use a lot of buttons in my collages.
I've used all hand made papers, except the small watercolor wash on watercolor paper. I added some raffia, beads and of course the all important BUTTONS. Oh, also a little metallic rick rack and some woven fabric trim. These buttons are unfinished wood, tied with hemp twine.
There is something calming about using the natural materials and colors, and I like how buttons add another dimension to collage.
