When I think of a project that would reflect my personality but would be a useful item to others I think of a book marker. Summer is right around the corner, summer reading goes along with that. What better thing to make than a book marker?Personally I love to read historical books, which makes me think of historical figures that were larger than life and that inspired me to think of Marie-Antoinette as being the person that I would like to put on my book markers. In a way I have multiple themes going on here......items that reflect my personality, Spring Colors, Marie-Antoinette and book markers. Here is what I came up with.
To start I cut a piece of 140# Strathmore water color paper into strips that measure 2" by 9". You can cut the strips shorter if you like or change the width, it depends on the measurements of the book you are creating it for. After cutting the strips I used a large stamp by Magenta, you can use whatever stamps you have on hand,. I covered the stamp with IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko Memento Luxe Wedding Dress ink which is a lovely shade of white, then covered the stamping with embossing powder. I heated the embossing powder and then allowed it to cool.
