New Bookmarks

Here are two more bookmarks. I have eleven more I’m working on, which I hope to finish sometime in the next week or so. It all depends on what happens with my writing and my grading.

More Bookmarks –

I’ve done a few more Wooden Jewelmarks, and I have a few more in the process. I’m looking forward to getting this on the road, and I hope to be creating either a website where I can sell them. In the meantime, look for them by word of mouth or at a trunk show coming soon! 🙂

Latest Adventure: Bookmarks

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!
