Some book marks to add to a new growing variety of items for Ten Women Gallery. These started as paste paper that I tore into the size that slips in the plastic book mark holders. I collaged and added the calligraphy. I even added a tassel at the end.
These are ornaments with a natural flare so they can maybe sell even after the holidays...
I purchased a thin piece of wood at Michaels to make this door hanger, used gesso and stenciled a design when dried and layered white acrylic to soften the stencil design. After doing the letters which are also stenciled, I decorated them and put a layer of mat medium to seal. I used glue along the edges and sprinkled glass crystals on top of the glue to give a snowy look. Drilled small holes, threaded with wire, a bead, ribbon, strip of fabric and whalla! That's all she wrote!
I'm so grateful to be able to share my art with others. I'm mixed media and love doing lots of different mediums. My main stay is calligraphy of course and most of my art has words in them, hence "The Word is ART". Hope you like what you see and come back often.
Have a blessed day. Renee
