My Creative endevours have moved

MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Life is short... do what you love....

is the sentiment on this easy peasy bookmark I made.  The words and paper are from Crafty Individuals and for once I thought I would make something for myself which is pretty and practical.

I used a rectangle of paper adhered to card, roughed the edges with an emery board and snipped into the bottom with my scissors to create some fringing.  I cut out the butterfly from another part of the paper...curling the edges over my scissors before adding it to complete the bookmark.

A hole punched through the top and some co-ordinating ribbon and quick as you like... no need to turn over those page edges again.  That's soooo naughty isn't it and a complete no no with our craft

Beautiful bookmark and a great sentiment.
Thanks for the link to the Paris ATC sheet, got it and printed the two dress form ones, they have reproduced so well - bit of a Johnny come lately to printing images as I never thought they would be as good - but these are fab, will be going back for more.
Love Linby x
