Bookmark Promise

 
Please excuse me while I joyfully step out of the winter mode for a moment!
BRR! It's getting colder and we are expecting another snow storm, but I have my thoughts set on a new hope for a warmer day!
I am about to start a new study with an actual physical hardcover book!

 You know the kind of books we used to read before technology took over.

Believe me, I have no complaints! I love that I can now carry around ALL my books in one handy location on my phone, or tablet! But, I suddenly realized…I don’t even have a bookmark any more!

No worries…I will just make one!

I decided to use “Heather” because she just looks like she is full of hope! Doesn’t she? 

I chose Jeremiah 29:11 because it holds so much promise! I don’t know about you, but I NEED this kind of reminder…sometimes even daily!

Things don’t always go as we plan, even if we think our plans are perfectly thought out…or, even if we think life is going just as we want, or even expect. Anything could change at any given moment, and sometimes, we don’t have any control over our circumstances.

I think this will make a great bookmark! It’s bright, it’s colorful, it’s cheerful, and now… it’s full of promise! The Promise of a New Day!

So now let’s talk about how I created this enjoyable little daily reminder.

First of all, I knew I was going to use a tag as my base, so I sized and printed my Digi Doodle image on white card stock and colored it with Copic Markers, Colored Pencils, and Watercolors.

I decided to play around with a new technique for me, by using a few Distressed Oxide Inks. Sometimes, some of the fun of creating a new project is not always knowing exactly what you might end up with when you are finished. You just have to trust that the techniques you are applying will often yield amazing results!

Tag Splatter

 I combined a few different colors (supply list below), spritzed them with a little water, and then dabbed my tag in and around to pick up color in various sizes and random shapes. Others might saturate the tag full of color, and certainly you can do that, but I wanted a more splattered look for this tag.

Creative license…it’s a beautiful thing!

I designed and printed the Scripture, and used a die cut to make it pop! I then sponged more distressed ink along the sides of the tag as well as the Scripture die cut.

I finished my project off with a few more die cuts and embellishments and added a ribbon…and there it is! My new Bookmark!

This was way too much fun...I wonder what my next bookmark willl be! Or yours...I would love to see what you come up with!
