Good morning, Maja Friends, welcome to the blog today 🙂
I don’t know about your places, but in Poland autumn more often than not is cool, rainy and windy (although we do have a term “golden Polish autumn”, meaning the warm time with all those fabulous colours!), with temperatures discouragin any outdoor activity 😉 So it’s the best time to curl up under a soft blanket, grab a cup of raspberry tea and indulge oneself in reading! And therefor for my today’s post I’m sharing two bookmarks I made for my sweet cousin and her husband 🙂
My cousin likes greens and purples, so I chose these colours from the Ska Vi Ta En Fika? collection for her bookmark and added golden accents:
I embossed the stamped Bible quotation with golden ep and then made a watercolour background using the embossing resist technique. I also tied some charms at the top:
The back side of the bookmark features gorgeous purple roses background, and my cousin’s initial and a stamped “I’m reading here” sentiment 🙂
The bookmark for her husband is made exactly in the same way, though I used a different stamp and colour palette, based on the Denim & Friends collection (love!). I also used decorative signature strips as borders:
And the back side:
And here’s what I used:
Maja Design papers:
Other: stamps: Prima Marketing, Lemonade, Art Parts; charms: Marianne Design, Rayher; dies: Crealies; inks: Ranger.
I do hope the bookmarks will make the reading even more pleasant for my family 🙂 What do you think?
See you later!
