As I rummaged for inspiration and materials to incorporate, I found myself drawn to medieval images and colours schemes. I won't go into detail about all my selections -- I'll show you the spread first, then tell you about the significant features . . .
The images are just ones that tickled my fancy from an old art calendar. The sonnet is a copy of one I studied in high school and university, so it has a bunch of my notes written on it. The required pocket is in the bottom right corner, secured by ribbons through pierced holes (oh, and one staple because the first hole tore!)
In the pocket is a special holographic/hologram bookmark . . . But first, the "boring" side:
On the other side, we have children reading a medieval story together:
But turn the bookmark slightly, and suddenly they're IN the story!
Cool, eh? Here's a glimpse of both holograms at the same time:
How fun is that? I knew I'd hung onto those school agenda covers (for YEARS!) for a reason!
While I'm here, I thought I would show you another version of our tree art that DD8 did today with a couple of her friends. We did it "right" this time and used acrylic paint for the leaves. It turned out so much better than the paint dabbers!
Have you done anything creative today?
