I just read about an ongoing contest over at Life With...Sarah 's blog. I figured if I don't win, I'll at least have an interesting photo of my button collection. I've been playing with masks in Photoshop lately. I made a "button" out of the many, many buttons I own. They are sorted by color mainly but some are by materials (silver, metal buttons) vs. mixed materials such as gold metal buttons with black plastic centers. These are obviously very different and are then sorted in their respective baggies. (yes, very obvious to.. me heh). All in all, a fun exercise.
