Bookmarks

I spend quite a lot of time in my studio 'playing' with paint. I paint on gessoed cartridge paper, layers and layers of paint rolled, sprayed, dripped, and textured.  These become part of mixed media work.  Of course I always have scraps everywhere.

It is helpful when people such as Chris at Parabolic Muse have a bookmark swap so that I can use a few 'bits'.



These are far more subtle than my usual colours, but a change is good.

I haven't yet received my return bookmarks, but will post them at a later date along with others from my ever-growing collection.

  4. Jo, these are great! They'd look fabulous peeking out the top of a book.
    I hope this week is a bit slower for you and that you can be in your studio a LOT!
