For my Environment project I have chosen to look into recycling and a new way of advertising it. I first found this image by Future Perfect on a blog that contained loads of environmental pictures.
I really liked how it was made completely from buttons. I knew that I wanted to try and do something similar to this.
Also found this artist Kathryn Spence who makes birds from bits of fabric, stuffed toys and other found material like litter. Although a bit creepy I really like some of them.
This gave me the idea of making a Magpie, as they notoriously collect things so it seemed a good place to start.
I wanted to try and created a magpie in a similar way to Kathryn Spence.
