mixed media monday


I was in the mood to make something tonight, I'm not yet ready to start my christmas cards, so I decided to have a go at mixed media monday for the first time.
The theme is buttons. I love buttons. I have a massive box full of odd buttons. So I had to play. I then had the idea I'd like to make the piece itself a button. so I decided to alter a CD, not a normal one but a mini one (about 3" diameter)
the main image is Inka. as is the feather on the background. I have also used a SeeDs button and hampton art mesh, and the letters are hero arts.
I'm holding the CD to give an idea of the size and also to try and catch the shimmer spray.
