Happy Watercolor Blended Bookmark

May 9, 2014 No Comments

Last night I held the first of my online classes for demonstrators to learn a bit more about using Blendabilities.  When I was through with the class, I had all of these lovely pansies from Happy Watercolor that I had colored in the course of the class.  They’ve been staring at me all morning.

What I really need to be doing is finishing reading scholarship applications.  But, I keep looking at the flowers instead.  I need to make something from them.  Finally, inspiration hit.

We’re book people.  It’s not that I/we haven’t tried to love the e-readers.  I love the idea of them.  But let me tell you, the first time you’re really hooked on a story and you’re staying up until you finish and then the reader runs out of juice…well, let me just say the love affair was a bit tarnished.  I didn’t want to wait for it to charge.  I wanted to be irresponsible and stay up all night reading.  Then, when a book would only load up to a certain chapter no matter what I did it was time for a divorce – from the e-reader.  So, I need bookmarks.

I’m loving this one.

I used a 2″ wide strip of Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the base and punched one end with the Scallop Tag Topper.  Next, I added a layer of Whisper White and attached it with the new Fast Fuse adhesive.  You can try this product for yourself in June.  Next, I cut out several of the poppies that I had colored in the Blendabilities class.  I used both the Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight packs.  A few random dots were added with another stamp from Happy Watercolor that had been inked in Old Olive.  And finally, I attached a piece of Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon to the top.

 

I love that with the Blendabilities it’s easy to achieve shading and no matter how you choose to shade it all looks good.  Each of the flowers is a little different.  You should see them in person.  They really pop!

Here’s a close up of one of the flowers.  Notice how even the color is?  That’s one of the beautiful things about the new Blendabilities markers.

 

 

Well, I must get back to processing scholarship applications.

You should sign up for my mailing list so that you’ll know when the Blendabilities will be available to you.
