For the first book: Objects of My Affection, by Jill Smolinski, was the May selection for the Bookendz Book Club. It was a very quick read and well-written . I definitely recommend it! And, if you missed the discussion last night in the CMC chat room--well, let's just say it was a absolute riot! Suzanne Dean has some very wackadoodle friends, who can keep you laughing pretty much non-stop. Yes, Tina, I am looking at you! And Suzanne certainly knows how to pick reads for her book club! Every one of them has been entertaining for me.
For the second book: The Jinn by Stephen Guth. Don't bother. Really. I don't know why I finished it, except that it p****d me off that I downloaded it, so I was stubborn, (who, me?), and read it to the end. Ugh.
Now to the bookmark. This was a first for me--the first bookmark I ever colored with Copics and the first bookmark I have ever made for a challenge. Not important, I know, but true. I forced myself to finish it today, even though all I really wanted to do was start another book. Reading is an addiction, I tell you. And I am in the throes of it right now. Help me. Please?
I used the Camping Sleepover digi images by Saturated Canary for my bookmark. I thought the girl adorable, as all of Kristi's images are, and I thought the books would be perfect for the subject! I printed them on Cryogen CS and colored them with Copics: E000, E00, E11, E25, E31, E50, YG95, R81, R83, R85. My base CS is Bazzill; my patterned paper is from the Lemonade collection by Basic Grey; my twine is from Stampin' Up. The dies I used were a ticket die by Memory Box and a butterfly die by Cheery Lynn. I printed the ticket with a font from my Word application. I finished the image with Stickles on her flip-flops, Glossy Accents on her eyes, and Copic Opaque White to accent her clothing. BTW, the Opaque White is my new favorite for accenting images. I can apply it with a toothpick and have more control over the application than I did with any other product I've tried. Love it!
I am entering this project into the following challenges:
OK, that's it for me today. Hope to be back at the end of the week with a new project--but that depends on my reading addiction, don't ya know. Have a great rest of the week!
