So many books … so little time

Hello all, Kia here with you today.  I decided to change it up a bit and do a bookmark.  I could not resist this Bookmark called So many books, so little time.  Isn’t that the truth!

The image is stamped on Arches 140lb Coldpress Water Colour Paper and used my Zig brushes to paint.  I wanted the Gerbera Daisies to pop so I did them in a Light Carmine and Scarlet Red, and used a Light Blue for the background. The flower centres and around the clock are done in yellow, and the clock face is done in a Light Grey.  Once it was dry I attached it to black cardstock and then thought I wanted to do the back as well, so I painted another in different colours for the back of the bookmark.

This is the back of the bookmark. The Gerbera Daisies are done with yellow then the Light Carmine, and the background I changed to May Green.  The accents are still yellow but the face of the clock is done in a Medium Grey.  I like both of them, each different from the other.  Art Neko has the Plastic Sleeves for protection, so I have used this for my bookmark.  There  also was a Tassle, but while I was painting the bookmarks, my pet Cockatiel named CC, had a party with the tassel. I should have know something was up when she was so quiet. The tassel became spaghetti. So, to replace the tassle I used some Bakers Twine in yellow and white.

I hope you enjoy this post today and wish to thank you for visiting the Art Neko Blog.

    How cool that you made it double-sided with different background colours. Funny, I always see those flowers as poppies!! Whatever they are, they are beautiful. And yes, such a true sentiment!
