When my kids were little I would read to them, they grew and stopped wanting that but neither of them liked to read for themselves. Finally, when each reached high school, the love of reading began to spread through them too and they are both VORACIOUS readers now. I can hardly keep up with all the downloads for their kindle & ipads. Really, it's more reasonable to buy the downloads (occasionally free even) then buy the paper books but sometimes they just want that textile feel of having the real thing in their hand, my son especially. So today I decided to make some bookmarks. Both are feminine so I will have to come up with one for my son too but I thought they could use them or give them to friends or whatever they want. More a memory of me for later in life than anything else :)
The next one is much the same process except I used a chippie which I painted pink, dabbed white ink on and then sanded a tiny bit to distress. I also add some pink self stick pearls from Michael's and a Zva Creative pearl flourish. I also Mod Podged on some tissue and then to make the whole thing sturdier I Mod Podged the whole book mark. This sweet little image came from Sugar Lump Studios.
I'm in a streak so I'll have a couple more tags or bookmarks for you tomorrow. Thanks for visiting today, go grab a book and snuggle down and have some you time!
