On catch up…

On catch up for #30daysketchbookchallenge, the first challenge was buttons.. This took an hour. For day 1, buttons….and a few marbles in this button bowl…

I’m not completely happy with it but decided to limit myself to an hour.. Used pencils, watercolour paint and felt pens. Not sure whether there is a time limit.

Buttons, marbles and a hair tie.

I collect ‘stuff’, I have ‘collections’ or as others would call it ‘clutter’.

Plants, cat ornaments, paintings, marbles, a few buttons, drawings, sketchbooks, cushions, books (lots of). A few cats, other stuff….. Hubby has bikes, trains, other stuff.

Where do I put it all, where do I keep it? Our house is more like a museum than a home. I need storage, I wish I could shrink it all down and put it on my phone. Or give me a shrink Ray and I can put it all in a dolls house!

Button bowl

I got this last year. Its a bowl constructed of buttons stuck together with PVA adhesive. It was made by a friend who used a bowl as a form to make its shape. The only thing is that it has deformed slightly because it was pushed into by another object.

I like her choice of colours and the way you can see the gaps between the buttons. I don’t think it will last forever. Perhaps it will turn into a forlorn heap of buttons, but it’s OK for now.
