Default MIX181 - All Buttoned Up (7/15/16)

Challenge Title: All Buttoned Up
Hostess: Scrapcat (Ky)
Keyword: MIX181
VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

Happy Mix-Ability day! Today I want to play with my grandma's button jar. Did you have one from a relative? They are quite fascinating. I thought it might be fun to set out some tea and a snack, paw through those buttons, and come up with a fun new way to add buttons to your project. You can build a collage, use some neat friendship-bracelet weaving to tie it down with, or make an animal using the button as a major body part. Or maybe you have something unique you'd love to share!

Remember, for your project to truly qualify as mixed media, you need to use at least 2 different types of art media. You can click HERE for a list of supplies you could choose from. If you want to start these challenges in the pages of an art journal instead of a card, or on scrapbook pages, or on 3D items - please know - ANYTHING is welcome! We want you to learn and enjoy!

Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX181) when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can all ooh and ahhh! Go forth and create!

Snietje, Mix-ability is to help people realize that they have the ability to do mixed media. Mixed media is using 2 or more art mediums. If you click HERE, you can see a list of some suggested art mediums.

I added the buttons at the last minute thinking hey - I could do this for Mixability challenge too! Audrie as usual you pick some of the best websites to get inspiration from! I chose this one for mine:

Also will try and send this to my lab tech Jo, she just had double knee surgery a few weeks ago (OUCH!) - and I need her back as soon as she is able to finish therapy! She is the only one I allow to draw my blood. She is the sweetest girl too!!!

Everyone, please give the MariLynn a big hand. I had intended to get everything done in time to have a sample and everything ready to go before leaving for Africa.

Obviously, that didn't happen. Best laid plans and all that. Thanks, MariLynn, and all our challenge players for giving me grace! Off to hop through the gallery!
