Scandart Sunday: Buttons & Binca

Nearly missed the deadline for my own ‘Scandart Sunday’ (anything beginning with B theme)so somewhat hurriedly and randomly, I scattered the button box over the scanner bed and overlaid them with a piece of block weave canvas (Binca). The brilliance of the buttons is illuminated by the light source underneath whilst the definition is sufficiently bold when scanned at 300 dpi – enough to see the weave, as well as the cotton thread remains.
