G is For Girl Bookmark

I was feeling kind of girly, and also feeling like making a new altered art bookmark, so with those as my starting points, this G is For Girl Bookmark was the result.

G is for Girl Altered Art Bookmark

I started with a piece of cardstock scrap paper that I liked. It has hints of pastel minty greens and grays, though it's kind of difficult to tell that in the photo. I cut that to bookmark size and then also scalloped the bottom edge.

To embellish, I started with some stickers: the "G", and also a postage sticker. And I added a paper accent showing some "G's" and the word "girl" as well, which I also used some distress ink on to distress the edges. I added a contrasting strip of scrap paper at the bottom of the bookmark. Then I added the vintage photo of the little girl, who's carrying a large cone of flowers, and wearing minty green and pink (very girly!).  Then I added some paper flowers, which I attached with plastic button brads. I even added a little button brad to the little girl's pants. And I finished it off with a coordinating satin ribbon.
