Bookmark for ABAA and Colour Create


Awfully Big Art Adventure have a bookmark as their challenge this week so here is mine....showing both sides.....it's based on the Holy Grail tapestries designed by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones.
I thought it would be amusing to put some words on the bookmark...just in case the book was boring !
The background is done with a copper dabber and the images are from a magazine.
I'd also like to enter this in the Colour Create challenge which this week has picked the colours "Orange,Yellow and Green"
Thanks for popping by !

Very creative and beautiful, RubyMay. Love the copper dauber.

My image isn't a transfer, but it is an unmounted rubber stamp that I received as an RAK a year or so ago. I believe it is by Hearts in Touch. While they are really beautiful stamps, I still haven't mastered stamping with them.

Its gorgeous! I love the background colour and the beautiful images. I think this tapestry is on display at the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery - I'm going there in a few weeks so I shall have a look!

Absolutely stunning - but then I am a huge William Morris fan. The copper background is so effective - a very beautiful piece of work, and thanks for joining in our challenge.

Beautiful! Too funny what you say about a "boring" book! That's is such an interesting tidbit about how they wove the tapestries - and your bookmark looks almost like it would be the front and the back as well with the directions the people are facing.....
