Mixed Media Bookmark in Memory Of

Hi, There!

I am trying to be more aware of recycling some of the packaging I receive from orders.  So I used this cardboard backing that my refill for my Tombow Adhesive was wrapped in.  Since it has the cutout at top, I just thought it would be a perfect bookmark for me.

I started with covering the whole backing with heavy gesso and used blue fragments mixed into gel medium on top of that.  More gesso with applying a piece of cheesecloth and a piece of torn cardboard. The 3 butterflies were made with modeling paste and used the negative from a cardboard piece Dusty Attic chipboard.   Painted with Silks Acrylic paints mixed with gel medium.   Used Lindy's Flat Fabio Hibisucs Rose and Caribben Blue for background and then went in with Lindy's Starburst Spray inks and I wish you could see how beautiful these inks are with their specks of gold!!  Used 7 Dot Studio text stickers.  My bookmark is in honor of my Mom, Dad, and my dearest friend, Terry.  They are all my special angels in heaven.  Thanks for stopping by, have a blessed day, till next time ~  Hugs CaroleAnn
