Bookmarks



So remember the BrainQuest deck of 300 questions and answers. My kids outgrew the decks we have so what better way to "recycle" them than to make them into collage bookmarkers. After sanding and painting a layer of gesso......





I went crazy with a collage of vellum images, stickers, fabric, ink, glimmer mist, ect. These are layered with UTEE. After putting them in the freezer for a couple minutes, I was able to get the cracks for a more vintage feel. (The others in my last bookmarker post were covered with epoxy. That seems to have better coverage for protection).

The BrainQuest Idea is great and your other bookmarks are beautiful! They will definitely bring a smile to someone's face everytime they open their book!

Lisa, aren't you so clever!! What a great idea and lovely results! I didn't know about that cracking technique, I love the crackle effect. I'll have to try that, any tips?

Thanks for sharing your great ideas!
