Button Monday

I had so much fun with last week's button Monday post that I spent a little time playing again this week.  A selection of vintage beauties.  Mostly plastic with some wood, glass, and leather. 


love this celluloid wafer





Don't miss the message....



Happy Monday!

That is so pretty! I understand why you wouldn't want to take it apart. What a cool tree - you should try making some wall art out of your button creations...or at least turn the photos into cards. :)

As usual, I love it!

KarenB said...

Lisa, I just thought of something. . . you should sell prints of that second photo! I bet you'd have some takers!

Colleen said...

Lovely, as ever.

I'm so glad I found this. You've made me like Monday!

margie said...

I think you should publish a book of these button art pieces. I know I would buy it

Happy Monday to you too, and beautiful tree!

This is making me look at my own button box in a whole new light! :)

I love the designs you have made with your buttons. I think that sewing or glueing it down and then framing it would be AWESOME. I may have to do this with some of my vintage buttons. Thanks. :D

It's indeed a nice idea, and it could be a concept for some clothing or something...

I would love to put your button tree into a t-shirt contest at Threadless. It is a contest sponsored by Threadless and Shutterstock. If we won, I'd split the $2000G with you...and it would pull a lot of Shutterstock attention to your fabulous photography. If interested, email me (Laura Brightwood) at brightwoods3 at gmail dot com. I only have till the 20th to pull it together.

That became so beautiful! Do you stick the buttons up?

This is awesome! I could do something like this on a smaller scale for a scrapbook page :)

I just found your site via thechocolatemuffintree who led me to the crafty crow who led me to your button mondays, i love it. This particular piece(the tree) i loved but didnt understand what message you wanted me to see. After geography I showed my daughters 7 and 4 this picture and asked if they would like to do a craft like this and my 7yr old said "yea thats soo cool and look it says play in the middle" wow. How did she see that and i didnt...who knows but i am glad that it was in there. I wish you the best....tanya
