Buttons On The Side
Odds and ends lying around on the work table.
Copied some old buttons and cut them out of paper.
Textured wallpaper underneath.
A black and white photo of Clinton NY in winter
An idea for three demensional work using the trusty glue gun.
The form was made with a hot melt glue gun
just loosely moving the hot glue on a piece of foam board.
After it was dry (pretty quickly) I pulled it off the backing and used
a plastic grocery bag to form her ballerina skirt. I had some words and wing like things
in hot melt glue hanging around so
used them to accessorize
this version of the Salvage Ballarina.
Used pink ribbon around her bodice and head to add more texture and some slight color,
No face on this one but thinking of adding a photo to her face to create her as some one......
