Focus ledger


On several plates I used paper buttons and I made this page to tell you the story behind it. In the Netherlands we have a proverb that says that if you want to remember something you need to make a knot in your handkerchief. And that's what I did. Made a two drawings of a handkerchief, painted them blue. When dried they were cut out and placed in this ledger.

If you translate the word knot to Dutch you get knoop. The fun thing is that if you do the same with button you also get knoop. Therefore buttons are for me little containers of memories and that's what this page is telling you and reminding me. I love "inventing" my own language.

Enjoy your thursday while making some lovely or interesting memories.
