Using Photos of Buttons




I like to use photos of buttons in my collage, use them whole or cut them up,one cut up button here. I course I like ocmplex backgrounds, this painting has napkins in the background as well.
This painting was in a stage of horrible for a long time, there are many layers of paint and it has been sanded several times with an emery board, I will say in the past hour of work it came together and I had worked 6 hours previous, bits if the very beginning are still there. It is one of my favorite color combinations.

And it is beautiful. Exactly what I blogged about--don't give up on a piece--it ends up having hidden layers that make it even better!
