Two books I have read in the past couple weeks are While We Were Watching Downton Abbey ~ a fiction novel by Wendy Wax, and Summer at Tiffany ~ a memoir by Marjorie Hart. Both were enjoyable reads and I would recommend for a "light" read.
Not sure what is next up on the docket as I have a huge pile to choose from but I welcome any suggestions! (my typical favorite genres are historical fiction and or mystery/suspense … in case you want to offer me any suggestions..hint hint!)
So while I was cleaning up my art studio today, I had blobs of leftover paint and I really hate to waste paint, but it wasn't a ton of paint. What to do?
I used this stamp from Hero Arts to add texture.
Then I stamped on a quote:
I then used a butterfly stamp in the top left corner for some balance.
My other two bookmarks I made with Maria McGuire's Stitch a Greek Border stencil from StencilGirl.
I took my blank tag and magenta dabbing through only part of the stencil.
I stamped deli paper with turquoise and cut out pieces to add on to the bookmark.
I added in some yellow ochre with my finger around the blue and magenta. I stamped butterflies and a quote on to deli paper and adhered it to the bookmark and trimmed.
What are you reading and enjoying?…I always love new book suggestions!
If you are local, be sure to join me January 23rd at the Spring Hill Library at 5:30 p.m. where I will be doing a free demonstration and you will make a bookmark with me!
