Because I obviously don’t have enough to do in my spare time *insert hugely sarcastic tone here* I decided to venture into new territory. I love pretty bookmarks. I love creative jewelmarks that hold the place of the story du jour while being aesthetically pleasing. So I set out on a quest at Michaels to find jewelry, ribbons, quotes, and other materials for my creations. I’m just getting started, so I think they’re a little rusty, but still, I’m proud of my newest children.
Here are four that I recently did (I call this “The Wooden Collection):
Like with writing, the start is the spark that lights the ideas. I have all these ideas and themes for cute bookmarks. I started out with just a few paints in basic colors, so my next step is to look at different acrylic paints and stencils. I have other ideas, also, for materials. These are called “Wooden Collection” because they’re made from wood. However, I’m have a few other possibilities in mind. Once I master the wood, I’ll move on to the next raw material.
Goal, apart from unleashing creativity in yet another medium? I would love to sell these. 🙂 Let’s see how that goes!
