Vintage buttons gain new life - as collaged ACEO art - Parrot button.
A new series of original collaged ACEOs.
"I found some 'interesting' buttons in a stash of vintage buttons, they weren't stunners but certainly too amazing to be hidden away amongst others. This red parrot button was fastened onto a Victorian ephemera image of a beautiful corseted lady, who did indeed have a parrot perched on her fingers. I added a real red feather to add a whimsical tail and decided to find some brilliant gold foil coins for a pirate and/or cigar box feel. This would be great as a collectible ACEO, or as part of a journal or larger collage."
