Spring bookmarks

It took me a while but I finally made a new set of bookmarks. I started on these a few weeks ago, but I got sick. Today I finally finished them. It are Spring themed bookmarks again with birds, flowers and leaves.

 First I worked on the background with acrylics. Green for the first layer and yellow for a second layer.

 Then I pasted pieces of paper onto the bookmark in the shape of a bird, flower or leaf. And painted over that with another layer of yellow. I stamped some birds, flowers and hearts onto the bookmarks. Lastly I wrote some words on a green paper with a neon green gel pen and pasted that as well.
They are now laying under a pile of big books, so they should not curl up anymore after a few days. I made these bookmarks for the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop, I will be joining this weekend. So If you want to win this set of bookmarks, come back here next Saturday to enter the giveaway. I will be giving away a book on creativity too, but I won't tell you which book yet ;)
