Imagine Altered Bookmark

It's only a paper moon,
sailing over a cardboard sea,
but it wouldn't be make believe
if you believe in me.

(Jim Reeves song, It's Only a Paper Moon)

I just had to start off with the lyrics to the Paper Moon song, since that's what I heard in my head as I was making this altered bookmark.

Imagine Altered Art Bookmark

The background is a very soft metallic, pastel green, patterned cardstock paper, which I added a decorative bottom edge to. Next I added some coordinating cardstock near the top of the bookmark, to which I stamped on the word Imagine. Next I cut out some pink butterfly wings to turn this vintage photo of a girl into a fairy. Then I adhered them to the bookmark, and added a pink roses sticker, which also has a sprinkling of glitter on it (or is it fairy dust?). I finished the whole thing with a coordinating pink satin ribbon.

I love this little vintage fairy, sitting on her paper moon. Kind of has a teensy bit of a shabby chic flair to it, don't you think?
