Found Art#1

Here is my first attempt at creating Found Art. I decided to make bookmarks because they can be left anywhere you find a book and they are more likely to be kept by the finder, because they are useful as well as being a small piece of art. Most of the designs are made with ink pen and water colour pencil and some with gel pens. They only take about 15 to 20 mins to complete, so I don't get too attached to them.

Now all I need to do is locate them in a book somewhere to be found, and wait and see whether I hear back from the finder.

I have been enjoying reading some very "arty" blogs, which I have added to my list if you are interested. They are very inspiring and I love seeing what other people are doing and hearing about their creative processes. Oh, and I found a great blog for booklovers a work in progress
