I've been working on things for the Art/Craft sale. Bookmarks are always a good seller, but trying to come up with an idea that isn't so labor intensive is tricky. Cause, no matter what you do, it's hard to sell them for more than $2 or $3.
So these are only a 5 part project (on each side). 1. Collage dictionary paper on bookmark stock. Let dry. 2. Do other side. 3.Collage hand-painted tissue paper. 4. Do other side. 5. Use stamps and paint to add dimension. 6. Do other side. 7. Cover with gel medium. 8. Do other side. 9. Spray with matte acrylic. 10. Do other side. And, of course, dry between everything.
I do love the feel of these bookmarks - kinda feel like shiny leather!
