While I was working on my photo assignment last week shooting pictures of a "group or collection", I came across this great collection of buttons in Metaphor Yarns, a fiber store next to my friend's fabric shop. I got so inspired by it that I got my button jars together to see what I had in my collection.
Another friend and I started to sort them out, and we were amazed by the variety in the jars. As you can see, we got some sorted by color, and put some of the unusual ones together, but I have a lot more to sort. I use them frequently on cards, and I had been wanting to glue them down on to a heart shape, similar to some I had seen in some cardmaking magazines. This tag happened to be on the table, left over from my Tag Tuesday post, so I cut a small heart, put it on top and began to fill it with buttons. I am planning on using little pearls to fill in some of the empty spaces. It may not end up on this tag, it may go on a canvas, it's a work in progress.
Stop by the Stampin Ground to see other interesting work spaces.
Have a great week, would love to have you leave a comment!
