It is the second week of 'Anything Goes' at Art With No Boundaries.
I've used the Solitaire Swirl and Monocle to decorate my bookmark:
As a little bonus to all who visit, I have assembled a tutorial to show how quick and easy this bookmark is to make.
You need : An image, a strip of card, about 3 x the height of your image, magnetic strip (I recycled some pieces from promotional items), and the other usual tools.
I cut my image with a pinking shears for interest. The card strip was measured and trimmed using the image as a guide.
My new toy: a Martha Stewart board. I used it to score the strip.
Colour the image and adhere.
I decided not to blend the pencil. I like the uneveness, it gives the image more texture without adding bulk.
Add magnetic strip.
Voila, a fun bookmark!
NOTE: Do not use more than 2 -3 layers, otherwise it gets too thick and might damage your books.
I used the brighter card for the tutorial because it is easier to photograph. Now I have 2 bookmarks!
Hope you enjoyed my tutorial and is inspired to join in the challenge!
