Art By Way Of Glue Gun and Creating With The Stars: Round 1

Sometimes all you need to make unique art is use a glue gun and found objects. This little agate art is a favorite of mine. My girls and I bought these at the National Natural History Museum in D.C. They had so much fun picking out different little colored stones and agates. Now it can be displayed in our home. (The table is a great thrift store find with a marble top!)
Every summer we collect shells and sea glass at the beach. Again, it was easy to use a glue gun to stick all the shells onto a linen backing and frame it. 
You don't even need a fancy big glue gun. I get the cheap ones and they do the trick.

 Part of making a gallery wall for our home is putting up art that has meaning. I made this simple L shape out of buttons and hot glued them down to the linen backing. Voila! Instant art gratification!

I've been pretty busy this past week working on my secret knock-off project for Creating With The Stars Contest.
