This was something new for me. I knew I wanted to have water colored bookmarks, but thought it would be smarter to make one large background piece and then trim it down to the sizes I needed. Such a large piece of blank paper. It was a bit overwhelming for some time. Like the stamp says, fear not.
After a while I felt a little more comfortable, but not all the way there. Distressing such a large piece was kind of confusing. I stuck with it, dried it and took it to the cutting board. When they were smaller I knew they would be wonderful. The edges got a gentle sponging along with light stamping from the same set.
Then a quick layering on elegant eggplant cardstock, the main color I painted with, and some new solid bakers twine to coordinate and it was all done. These will be wonderful to share with the young women I teach. Love those girls.
Have a creative day!
