Abandoned Art Bookmarks

One of the new things to do with your crafted items is to abandon them somewhere and leave your website address so whoever finds it can contact you.  I participated in a bookmark abandonment where my bookmark was left in a public library in Oregon (along with some of my Rubberstampchat compadres' bookmarks).    The challenge was to create the bookmark using a pink strip of paper that the organizer provided.  You could decorate in any way you chose.  I die cut mine after stamping some text on it.  Then I collaged it with some Lynn Parella stamped artwork onto a piece of cardstock and added dyed crinkle ribbon.

I hope whoever finds the bookmark enjoys it!  I would love to know what book it was left in.

Published in Rubber Stamp Madness Magazine!

When RSM magazine issued the space challenge, I could not resist!  I have dabbled in scenic stamping (using multiple stamps and a masking technique to create a larger cohesive scene), but, this was my biggest undertaking yet.  I actually started out with 5 of these and picked the best one at the end.  In fact, 3 of the 5 were so mistake ridden that they ended up in the trash.
I am very honored to have my work chosen for this issue.  They even included a little interview in which I reveal that I am terrified of flying - not kidding!
