Revision: A Gift from Me to You, re-do

"After a certain number of years, our faces become our biographies."
         Cynthia Ozick

I sincerely apologize to those of you who have received multiple versions of this email. As I say at the end of the post, I am on a learning curve, just sorry you have to be on the receiving end. So starting over and hopefully you will be able to print the entire design on one sheet.

Don't you love websites and blogs that share a gift from their heart to yours?
There are some wonderful  blogs and websites that are generous and open, sharing their talents through tutorials, designs, textures for photography, videos demonstrations, sewing instruction, computer tips. I have seen so much generosity as I have scooted through websites.

Now I am not clever enough to post video tutorials; I don't have some terrifically amazing way to do something that no one else has thought of.

But I do have many many designs that you might find useful and enjoy.

Today I want to share two BOOKMARKS.

(The reason I put the Print /PDF button on my blog was for such an occasion.)

Experiment with the type of paper you want to print on, but do set your print settings to highest quality. Enlarge to the appropriate size after printing. You can use watercolor paper, which is softer/lighter in color, card stock, or photography paper in gloss or matte (strongest color image.)

 You might choose to cover the back of the book mark with a pretty paper and laminate for strength.  Punch a hole in the top and tie with a ribbon. Card stock will hold up moderately well without lamination.

Other ideas: collages, art journals or gifts for friends. How about a paper doll (attach to a craft stick) for a child with an imagination.

I only request that you do not use the designs to sell as your own work.

 This is the first time I have tried this. It might need a bit of adjustment.  Give me any suggestions that will make this easier or more workable. I am always on a huge learning curve!!  Well that is now a fact!

Imagination is the highest kite one can fly.

  1. book mark? dear friend....when i look at your design on the left...the shape, colours, liveliness....i am thinking in a huge wooden painted room divider type of screen. oh window shutters.

    glorious are hugely generous!!!

  2. I have to agree with Rebecca. It would make a wonderful paneled screen. YES!!!


Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you take to say hello. Warmly, Sharon
