OSAAT DT Challenge 241 Anything Goes ... With Chillaxing

Good afternoon to all my friends and fellow bloggers.  This is my project for One Stitch At A Time "Chillaxing".  Just think of something nice and calming for you, or a relaxing hobby.  I'm sure you get the idea.

I have a few ways of chilling out and one of them is reading.  I'm not a television watcher - except for the cycling and of course it is Tour De France at the moment.  Brilliant!!  I am using papers from Panda Bear Designs  called "A Journey Through Reading" which you can find here.  I decided to make a corner bookmark using the papers and made a topper by shrinking down one of the papers.

My Project

The back of the bookmark using another of the papers - rather busy but it is not really seen.

No ingredient list for this because apart from the papers all I did was add some
pearls from my stash. Oh, I nearly forgot that I used a Fiskars punch along the bottom edge. I think it is called Threading Water. Oh, and a scrap of brown pearlescent card to cut the SB Label 16.  Guess I sould have done an ingredients list after all!! The colours make this a very masculine bookmark I think so I shall probably give it to my brother in law. He has always been an avid reader but since his stroke he gets through books at the speed of light because he is unable to go and work in the garden, or go for a walk etc.

Hope all is well with you.

Take care.
