Mixed Media Collage Bookmarks







Each of these bookmarks is a small piece of real art. Each one is layers of old watercolors cut into strips, mounted on hand decorated mat board.  Then each one is embellished using ink, stained paper, foil,  paint, stencils, and stamps.  The neutral background that is shown here is for photo purposes.  Each bookmark is edged in ink so that it has a nice finish to it.

When I showed these to art friends they were really enthusiastic and immediately bought some!  That's very encouraging so I have now made over  40.  Each is different because each comes from a portion of a watercolor so no two can be alike.  Each presents a challenge to me and it usually takes me 20--30 minutes just to figure out how to design each one.
