I made bookmarks before Christmas. I think all of them turned out pretty well and I want to do more soon. I think I could probably sit for a week and make these, add little bits of paper, color, write a word here and there… Collage is one of my all time favorite things to do. I love combining pieces of paper and create my art.
These bookmarks remind me of my Daily Art cards, but these are a step away from being just art because you can actually use them to mark where you are in a book. I like that a lot, because I love reading too! Though I still think they are arty – even after I laminated them to protect the surface. They are originals after all! Another way to produce these would be to print the scanned image and make that a bookmark.
Here are a few from the big pile I made:
All of them have one of my favorite inspirational quotes, things said by cool people like Simone de Beauvoir, Emily Dickinson and Julia Cameron. They are for sale at I Shop with Mom, take a look and let me know if you would like to own one of these!
