I love creating art in October for two holidays - Halloween and Dias de los Muertos. I don't think I made anything last year at all! So I resolved to change that for this year and bought some new paper to inspire me (it's from Echo Park's Chillingsworth Manor collection). I signed up for a Halloween themed book mark swap and made a couple of different designs. The two pictures on the left show the front of the bookmark, and the image on the right is the back. Here's the second set I made:
Again, the fronts are on the left and the back is on the right. I think my favorite of all is the "Nevermore" one, but I favor a fairly flat bookmark. Although these were fairly simple to make, they still seemed to take all morning. I just don't think I'm a very fast paper crafter! Regardless, it was a fun morning, and I'm calling these my "monthly make" for October. Got a favorite in the bunch? And, I was wondering, are you a fast crafter? Or a slow poke like me?
