Never throw away the buttons! Even if your old clothes are out of order and it’s time to take them to the trash or to put them on rags, be sure to cut off all the buttons and carefully fold them into the drawer. When the required amount is typed, you can lay out a landscape or still life from the clasps. The girl whose works are presented below loves buttons very much. Even her wedding bouquet was made from them. She has a huge collection of material from which she lays out various compositions.
The girl laid her buttons on plastic containers. There were more than a thousand of them. More precisely, the girl could not be counted, because she had a more interesting occupation. The panel was laid out on the old window frame. To begin with, it was fixed in such a way that it was possible to approach the working surface from either side.
To buy as many buttons, the girl had to win several lots at online auctions. All buttons needed cleaning. At the beginning, the girl decided to wash her catch in the washing machine, but the laundry bags could not withstand a lot of weight and burst. I had to wash everything manually. After cleaning the buttons had to be dried. Immediately one side, then the other.
Each panel has its own design.
The idea of composition was given by rural landscapes.
Since it was very difficult to choose all the colors, a girl painted some of the buttons.
In addition to buttons, beads and other sewing accessories were used in the composition.
One of the parts of the picture is called the “key to my heart”.
The buttons were sewn onto the fabric surface, and from the inside out they were fixed to sealants and polystyrene foam.
At the end for more protection, the girl added a layer of thick fabric.
Work is ready.
