It's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge time! The challenge is: B is for ... Let your creativity run wild. Birthdays, balloons, blue, bo bunny etc. We are very curious what you're going to create. Join in and share it with us!
Recently I started with reading in bed just before going to sleep. I've heard that it's better for your eyes and your mind, and makes you sleep better. But not on something that gives any light like, tv, laptop, tablet or phone. So I started reading books again. But I've actually never had a bookmark. I always used receipts from the book that I had bought. Why not make one?
I started to determine the measurements of the bookmark. I read paperbacks, so it should not be too small. After the measurements were set, I've cut it out of Manila Cardstock. With the Morrocan stencil, Cracked Pistachio and Iced Spruce I started the background. It didn't turn out as I had hoped and applied a layer of Gesso. Then I started working with the Spray Stain to give it more color.
The Scibble Flowers are so cool and you can make really funky creations with them. I did also a bit of doodleling. It was still a bit too monotone for me and with Peacock Feathers Spray Stain and a water brush I colored the flowers.
To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers.
