Just come across this great piece of Brigitte Herrod artwork made out of button badges. I think I might have a go at something like this - but on a smaller scale!
This incredible piece of art is just stunning. Each picture is created using a mixture of buttons from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s on a canvas measuring 120cm x 120cm. Each picture is a one off and totally original. You cannot help but stand and stare at all the buttons - the experience is a trip down memory lane that does not fail to make everyone smile.
