Another Bookmark to share...

Hi friends... My bookmarks are proving so popular that I thought I'd better try my hand at designing another style and this is what I came up with.  This one was commissioned by one of the lovely ladies that I work with... Her order was very specific: pinks, purples and must have Happy Birthday to her dear Sister.... Ok, so we're sitting with a small bookmark here, but hey.... we gotta make a plan to accommodate, right ? Riiiiight!!!!

But firstly, I thought I'd share a pic of the stamped image not quite completely coloured and blended... and then the completed coloured pic next to it, so that my non-crafty friends at work and in blogland can get an idea of how this 'colouring an image process' works.... They say a picture paints a thousand words...


And here is the bookmark, which I hope is exactly what Alicia was hoping for...  She chose the image herself. It's one of Elisabeth Bell's.


And to accommodate the wording, here's a view of the back of the bookmark... It also gives you an idea of how the bookmark is made to fit snugly over the corner of the page.


And... I have another one in the making, which I will be showcasing later... here's a sneak-peak...  Hope you'll be back to see the completed one... ;)  It's another image of Elisabeth Bell's.


That's it from me... gotta hit the sack now, it's late!  Happy crafting, hugs Sharon x

Good Morning

Your bookmarks sure are beautiful. Maybe you could make some and put them up for sale, as that will be such a nice christmas gift, especially if you put it in the receivers favourite book.

Thank you for sharing, I so wished that I stayed closer so that I could visit you for some lessons in colouring.

Have a great day.
