Bookmark Swap for Vera Lane Studio Facebook group

Hi everyone! There is a fun swap going on this month in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group. This month we are swapping bookmarks and the theme is Let's Hear It For the Girls. I love making bookmarks, celebrating the females in our lives, and creating with Vera Lane Studio images so this was win/win/win all around. I chose to feature the earth from the Change the World set and the girl and stars from Pleiades. I turned the girl horizontal so she looked like she was flying over the earth in her invisible cape.

All images were coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, fussy cut and matted with black cardstock. The stars were given a coat of Wink of Stella to add a little shimmer.

The background began as a 2.5x6 inch rectangle of mixed media paper which was spritzed with Lindy's Afternoon Delight Denim(top2/3) and Sassy Sapphire (bottom 1/3) Starburst Sprays plus water. Once dry, the card was splattered with white paint plus water using a rake brush to create a starry sky.

The sentiment was printed onto white cardstock, cut into sections, and matted with black. The topper was created from green and blue seam binding to pull the earth colours  up to the top section. The background was adhered to a sturdy piece of black cardstock both to frame it and to add strength and faux stitching was added around the outside edges with a black pen.

Thanks for joining Pleiades and me today. We love that you dropped by. To see the other fabulous bookmarks already entered into the swap, be sure to pop by the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group and check out the album. We would love to have you play along.

Life is good; so is art.
