Button Wednesday : Buttons Fasten and Threads Tie

It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Found some lovely button art last week, made by altered book artist Rachael Ashe. She has a small button collection gathered over the years, and settled on the buttons for an altered book project because the colors and textures appealed to her and also some experimenting with sewing on paper. I love it when she stated: "The irony of choosing so many buttons to work with in this book is that I hate sewing buttons. It’s one of those small tasks I tend to procrastinate, and it takes me FOREVER to get around to reattaching one when a button has fallen off my clothes." The funny thing is that I have exactly the same, although I like making my own button art :)









I love her use of pattern paper on top of the book and the red spinning threads !




Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here in the comments so that everybody can enjoy it !!

Funny how when it is a task we procrastinate but when it is creating often we can not stop :D

Gorgeous work

Beautiful... And ways of creativity are really weird... You can enjoy things you usually tend to hate...
