Hi, how are you today and how’s your week been so far? Today I am sharing my second DT project for Marvellous Mini Masterpieces, and this month we were challenged to make a bookmark! Here’s a look at what I created…
So as I mentioned last month, we have two challenges per month and my challenge was to use this gorgeous mood board as inspiration to make my bookmark. I love these teal shades and I love poppies and of course I love books and bookmarks so I was feeling very inspired.
Here’s a look at how this bookmark came together. Just click on the thumbnails to take a closer look.
First a bit of recycling of old amazon boxes.
I cut out two pieces from that large box, measuring 9 x 3 inches – hey I like big bookmarks and I can’t deny! Seriously, if you want a smaller bookmark, just cut out a smaller size, but I have a lot of large art books and I didn’t want my bookmark getting lost inside one of them so I made it bigger. You will see it later on in the post, next to some different sized books.
Most of these little scrap papers are leftovers from other projects, for example the piece above that talks about Chippendale furniture and a rosewood bookcase (appropriate right?) came from the art journal spread about the visit to Dumfries House. The diamond patterned paper is gift wrap from a present I received from a friend and I am getting so much use out of that as well as the actual present!
The final stage was to draw on all the leaves but I seem to have forgotten to take a photo of that – that tends to happen when I am in the moment.
I can’t wait to see your bookmarks for this challenge!
As always, thanks for reading. Let me know what you think in the comments 🙂
