I'm also going to play along as a visitor, at 'Tag Tuesday'. They have a 'Gardening' theme at the moment and as birds are a very important part of gardening (not always in a good way when they steal our goodies which are growing!) I hope this bookmark will be applicable. Some amazing artists show their work here and I'm constantly in awe of what they produce! Very inspirational.
I love bird stamps and although my collection isn't huge, there are a few which I'm always looking for an excuse to use.
I tried to avoid making a tag as I seem to make so many of these and decided that something slightly unusual was needed. I read a great deal - mainly what my husband calls 'trash' (I love detective type thrillers and he's convinced I'm collating evidence to help with a future, perfect crime!!) - so with that in mind, I thought I would make a bookmark. I have an electronic device for reading but nothing beats handling a real book in my opinion.
So, with no further waffling, here is what I've made:
|The elements used to make the bookmark. A brad and some jute thread were added later.|
|The completed Bookmark.|
|This close up shows the shimmer spray used on each of the bird 'tiles'.|
(Shimmer spray was applied to all elements of the bookmark).
|The jute thread was added to give a natural element to a nature themed tag.|
