Bookmark challenge.


On my 'to do ' list was to make a bookmark and Tuesday Taggers have a vintage bookmark as a theme this week so what better motivation could I have, I printed off a vintage lady and added fibres, lace and stitching on to a Timtex backing that had been heavily glimmer misted, it may have taken me longer to add the picture to this post as I can't seem to get my head around this pc operating system which is Vista ( i think).

This is beautiful Maureen.... the matching elements are lovely. I haven't had time to do one this week although I would have liked to.
Re: Vista... for what it's worth, I was advised not to have it lol! Hope you get sorted soon.

It's gorgeous Maureen and I love the colours - wouldn't be any good for me as a bookmark though, I'd be too busy admiring it to do any reading!

Beautiful bookmark Maureen. Isn't it frustrating when you're used to doing things one way and it becomes like second nature, only to have to get used to a totally new method. I'm still getting used to this new laptop but it is much better than the old one and I know we'll be friends soon!
