Mal asked me to make a bookmark for his new book, The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. Now bear in mind, he reads gardening magazines, and newspapers, but doesn't often get his head in a book! I really didn't know what to make as I have no idea what the book is about, so I made a simple bookmark using my favourite symbol(!) the lizard. I used some chipboard offcuts, and distress inked the background with Old Paper and a little bit of yellow. Then I stamped with Old paer the dots background. I then used some Radiant Pearls to ink up the lizard (American Art Stamp), and did the same with Dare to Dream ( Stampington) . When I coloured the background with brown shades of RP's it dripped onto my craft mat, and inadvertantly landed on the front. A Happy mistake! The Radiant Pearls are full of Mica , and I have had the bottles for at least 8 years, and they are open with no lids, and still work perfectly! How is that for a product!! I absolutely love these paints, but haven't used them for years.. I am not sure the scans do the mica shine justice.
