OMG! How perfect is this?

I received my bookmark from the 1-4-1 Autumn Bookmark swap and I cannot begin to describe to you just how gorgeous this piece is in person. My friend, Dymphie, truly creates some of the most beautiful pieces of art using inks and stamps that I've ever laid my eyes upon. She is truly one amazing artist!

Pictured above is the bookmark and co-ordinating envie in which Dymphie created to mail to me, both of these items are simply gorgeous! To see more of Dymphie's artwork and read how she created this, please, pay her a visit @ http://papierenavonturen.blogspot.com/ The stamped sentiment on the envie is perfect and you've definately inspired me throughout the years and will continue to do so. Thank you so much, hon, I'll cherish it always! I believe you've created the perfect bookmark for me to keep with this:





Now, I'll have to go digging around in the studio now in search of some charms and trinkets to rust. I love those tiny, little photo hangers which will allow me to add something onto, perhaps something created using my brown velvet fabric, it would allow me to attach the charms and a little more! Once again, "Thank you from the bottom of my heart!" I love it!

Cathy, I'm so happy you like the bookmark. Seems you have found the perfect book to use it in :) Cannot wait to see what rusty things you will make. Sounds very cool to play with 'rust'!

Dymphie,
Michael's book was a bit deceiving. It is filled with some of the wonderful artwork that Michael DeMong creates, however, instead of the "secrets" of determining how to create using rusty things, it is more about Michael's creative process. Somewhat of a disappointment, although there is a few hints included in his creative process. I'm delighted to include it in my art library anyway!
