My goal was to make a bookmark for myself. My color palette was a design paper I had with red, black, silver and white. As I was making it, I didn’t really have a plan, I just kept embossing, cutting, glueing, embossing again, cutting and glueing. Then I stamped my name but when it was all done, I haven’t tried it yet but it seems it is a little thick for a bookmark still I didn’t have the heart to throw it away and try again. I do kind of like it now that I’m looking at it again. I like how my silver paper when embossed really looks like metal. I’m sure I’ll use that in the future with other things I make so I’ll at least hang it on my cork board as a reminder to use shimmering paper in this way. Then today I was in the mood to make embellishments which I’m finding I absolutely love to do. So I used coordinating paper and added flowers to it.
