Bookmarks Galore!

Yeps ever since I got my new beloved 1.25" hole punch cutter I've been cutting a whole bunch of Bristol paper circles and drawing faces on them. Then I got this stroke of genius and created the little bookmarks above available in my shop. At first I noticed that with the heads the 1.5" x 6" white blank bookmark lacked that bit of oomph. Doodling little circles and polka dots I came up with those designs. I love how they turned out!
I also made bookmarks of my ACEO images and hand colored them. These are also available in my shop. Right now I made a little key chain type thing that I sprayed with three coats of Kyrlon Acrylic Spray and carrying it wherever I go to test the durability. I'm a bit iffy on laminating and resin which I hear stinks to high heaven!
I've also been working hard on some art I'm getting ready to put up in an art auction next year in July. I know that's really far in the future but I want a good variety of art since it takes me about a week or so to make each one from the pencil drawing to outlining in pen to scanning it and getting it on photoshop and another week or two weeks to decide on the paper and place to print them. The first one I print I do more designing by hand adding to it's uniqueness. The one above is the black and white version of a piece of art I sold last year but with my new photoshop I'll be recreating it and also adding some extras.

Until next time... create what your heart desires.. =D
