I started out by taking apart a keyboard. I really like the clear thing that you can see in the picture above. I didn't find anything else (out of what I brought in) that struck me as anything very interesting. So I decided to make something that had to do with color, because I had a lot of buttons that were different colors. I ended up using not just buttons, but also other small objects.
One struggle I had was that the objects kept falling off, so I had to keep gluing them back on. They eventually started to stay on. I had fun looking through all the stuff that the people at my table brought in and using it in my art piece.
I really like how the rainbow turned out. I'm glad I didn't just do colors randomly but made them in a rainbow.
