TEDDY BEAR HEADS



 Lot's of teddy heads!  Why would I make teddy heads?  Because, I'm thinking about making them into buttons.  I have a machine that makes buttons and magnets.  I purchased my button maker after I sold a few paintings last year.  Those button maker suckers are expensive!  Anyway, now I think about little illustrations that will look good in the round 1/4" buttons.

Funny story: When I first purchased the button machine I didn't have Word or any editing program on my computer.  I had no way of drawing a design and then resizing it with a program to fit the 1/4" buttons.  SO....I drew all my designs very tiny (smaller than 1/4") so they would fit inside the buttons.  I think that's why my eyes are now two powers worse than the year before last....glad Paul installed the word program. That's so much easier.  PLUS I can just draw normal and use the drawing for more than tiny little buttons. Yes, duh!

They are so adorable and will make fabulous buttons. I'm amazed at the tenacity of artists and what they will do in pursuit of creative expression... You have spunk my dear... I'd not be able to draw that small..

These are so cute, especially the one with the mustache. I never though about putting my artwork into buttons, what a great idea. Blessings!
