Bookmarks for A Soul Journal...and a bit of a whine...

So my children were having a bath, turned the floor into a swimming pool, I burst through the door in my usual gentle manner and went flying, landing straight on my back. Result: PAIN!!!!!!!!!!! And a trapped nerve that has only just found it's way out. Ow, ow, ow. Hence the gap in communications...

These bookmarks are off in the post today and hopefully will just scrape through in time for the deadline. I have used a Tibetan prayer bead for the belts, which can be removed so that the bookmark lays flat in the book, and can perhaps be used in some artwork by the recipient. (They can be unrolled.) All of the dangly bits can be removed and used in the same way if so desired.

One goddess envelope contains a little badge, and the other contains three inchie backgrounds. Both bookmarks have a message that seemed pertinent to the goddess theme that I chose from my G personal lexicon.

The hearts are microbeads covered with embossing liquid. I love hearts, as many of us do, and try to incorporate them when suitable. 

I painted the angel charms with metallic paint. These stand for being our own angels, which I think we are all capable of (on a good day!). I think each of us, deep down, know the answers to our own questions.

One has an old Chinese coin for hair/halo, and the other, a decorated flower. The tags are painted, embossed, then threaded with a word charm.

Hope the recipients like them!
