Hi again, did'nt want to do 1 great big long post with picture overloads so just doing a smaller ones.
I been busy making book marks. We have a Agricultural show coming up in September and I am busy trying to get my entry's ready for the craft tent, and one of this years category's is Bookmarks. I thought I would give it a go. So I got to work and have made 1 to enter for the show.
This is the 1st one , Used Magnolia stamps for this one. The book stamp was perfect, I just repeated the book image till I got it to the length I wanted then coloured with selection of copic markers.
I added the magnolia small frog stamp to the top and he was coloured with copic markers.
the small charm I made using shrink plastic, I stamped frog image on the plastic with stazon.. be carefull when you come to colour this with your copic markers.
As the stazon ink it tends to bleed if touched with copic markers and will ruin your markers.
The other option is colour with colouring pencils..
Put your hole to hang charm before you come to shrink it.
To shrink it just use your heat gun keep moving it around to distabute heat evenly
It will curl and shrivel up and you will think ... arhhh No ... but keep heating and it will unferl again.
Let it cool befor picking it up . and hay diddle diddle one cute charm to match your projects.
I also put my book mark through a laminator to make it more durable.
So are you thinking why the froggie for the book mark image ....
Daft I know but it reminded me of a joke when I was a kid.
A librarian was quietly working when three chicken's walked in and jumped on to the counter eyed her and said “BUK BUK BUK” Not sure she was sane she gave the chickens three books and they left. An hour later in walked the chickens again jumped onto the counter, returned the books they had taken earlier and said “BUK BUK BUK” Now convinced she was out of her mind she gave them three books, they took one each and left. This time she decided to follow them. She followed them down to the local pond and stood horrified as they threw the books into the water.Then Mr frog stuck his head up saying....
“RREDIT RREDIT RREDIT!”
