The challenge has gone out for the September Homepage over at Magnolia-licious Yahoo group. We are supposed to create a bookmark. I have tried several different methods of creating a satisfactory bookmark and this is my very last try! I also challenged myself in a couple of areas.
1. Find the time to do this project. (see post below this)
2. Use the color purple - very hard for me to do.
So here is what I've come up with:
Here is a closer view...
Here is a close up of my sweet Tilda:
Here's what I did. I used an old SU bookmark and placed it between a folded sheet of dp then cut out the shape. This was to give my bookmark some thickness and make it sturdy. I then glued the three layers together using my ScorTape. I had colored my Tilda with Copic Markers then used my Small Oval and Scalloped Oval Nestability dies to cut her out. I added white dots to the scallop and doodles to the plain oval shape. Then I decided that she needed to be ON something so I drew in a book! What better prop for Tilda to lean on for a bookmark than a book?
The white ribbon is just some generic stuff I have on a roll and the grosgrain is SU Eggplant. I tied the bow using my Bow Easy.
That's it! It took me all week, but I think I'll enjoy using it...when I have time to read...
