i started with sheets of watercolor paper and had fun with inks, acrylics and stamping a texture. lots of layers, as thats how i like my art.
i cut them into random sized bookmarks, cause thats how i roll. i don't need no stinking measuring device! organic, baby.
i knew i wanted to use book pages in the bookmarks, so tried different ideas for the affirmation phrases. i wasn't happy until i stamped the words onto the blank areas of the book pages. it
took a little time for me to find the look i wanted, but i am pleased with the clean look it created.
after stamping, i went over with pen to darken the ink
i added several layers of gloss medium to seal and protect the bookmarks, learning as i went along.
some in the drying phase
i added ribbon to the bookmarks, and pixel kitty helped
my book loving friends and family loved their affirmation bookmarks, and i enjoyed sending them loving energies!
from my home to yours, heres to a happy, healthy, prosperous and blessed 2017
