...Bookmark Swap...

...I can finally post about my bookmarks for the Bookmark Swap at Vegan Fox in the Snow...as I'm sure Roxanne has them now...

...I just sketched some iconic people (well the da Vinci quote is sort of a sketch of his Vitruvian Man)...and I've done pencil sketches of Einstein and Ghandi in the same poses before...added one of their 'vegan' quotes onto some card stock...

...originally, I was just going to cut up this original and send it...

...but then I thought I ought to send one to sweet Cassie too - for heading up the swap...and I thought how easy it would be to just copy it again onto card stock...so that's what I did...

...then I just punched a little hole in the top and threaded some black yarn through it...then I combed that out to make it a sort of frizzy tassle...

...I just like the kinky yarn like that...

...then I packed them up in sets of three and sent them on their way...

...it as a fun swap!

  8. Great sketching. I went over to look at the other bookmarks and they are all splendid!

    Is that a 'tiny' blue comb or a trick of the camera?
