Watercolor bookmarks

I made bookmarks last weekend for couple of very special women in my family. Before wrapping them up I thought I would share them with you.

Happy Thursday, friends! 😊

It started with aΒ 6 x 9 inch painting of transparent flowers.

After it dried, I cut my painting in half and trimmed each bookmark to a nice size.

Then I punched a hole in the top of each bookmark and added a bright green ribbon.

Oh I love that color, it looks so pretty with my painted bookmarks.Β πŸ’š

I enjoyed making these gifts and hope they will be loved.

Until next time, share a smile and shine on.

Happy Painting!

Chickadee painting

This little guy is on his way to a new home.
I recently painted a chickadee for a friend retiring and moving to Maine.

painted on 7 x 10 inch Canson Mix Media paper

The black-capped chickadee is the state bird of Maine and the white pine is the state tree. I thought a painting of both would make a nice gift. πŸ™‚

and I’m so happy… he really liked it and said that he was planning on hanging it in his new home. yay!

I hope you are inspired to create art and do something you love. Thank you for stopping by and following along.Β  Until next time, have a great weekend.

Happy Painting!
