Heart Bookmark

I made this little bookmark on a stand at the craft show I visited at the weekend.  They were demonstrating their range of acrylic craft paints and also 3D dimensional paints so you could create whatever you wanted using their products.

I was really impressed with the craft paints as they give a lovely chalky finish and far less expensive  compared to some other chalk-finish paints.  I bought a few colours to try but may well get some more once I've had a play.  

The background was greated using a drag of the paints with an old credit card for a spatula and then I added texture with various bits and pieces eg bubblewrap, sequin waste etc.

I drew my hearts in dimensional paint and infilled then with craft paint which I built up a little for texture.  I painted the little die cut hearts and stuck them one to complete my heart theme.

I added the ribbon trim back at home and voila!  

Footnote: Anyone got any suggestions for using a bookmark with a Kindle?!!! LOL  xx
