Nothing But Time

Here is a bookmark I created, using an image from StretchNBubbles, called "Nothing But Time". This sweet little dragon is available in the SNB Shop right now!

My 13 year old nephew has been visitingon his school holidays, and likes reading - but didin't bring a bookmark, so I made one for him - good thing he likes dragons!

Ingredients: Papers - Kaisercraft; Rub-on borders - Kaisercraft; Markers - Bic; Glaze Pens - Sakura.

Being a bookmark, I had to keep it completely flat, so that it wouldn't damage books in use.  So what I did was made it as a 'card' but folding in reverse - the fold is on the right hand side, so it can be placed 'around' a page or two, so it won't fall out of the book.  I adhered the image to the top of the 'card' with some overhang - this way the dragon will peep over the top of the book when it is closed!

Thanks for peeping!
