Aliah Bookmark

I love making bookmarks - probably comes from my love of reading - plus they are SO easy and FUN to make. My mom commented on my bookmarks recently  so I knew I had to make her one. This is the one I've made her for mother's day. Maybe. I kinda like it, too. haha!! I used this gorgeous hannah lynn Aliah digital image available now at Crafts and Me. gosh, I absolutely LOVE her hair! When I print out any Hannah Lynn image, I first look at the hair - and I'll admit, every time I'm a little nervous so I might stare at it for a good 5 mins trying to figure out where I want to go with it, what color, where the highlights will hit, etc. It's the best way to get inspired though because the longer I look at it the more excited I get to coloring her! I paired her with some October Afternoon paper scraps and some of this gorgeous new trim I picked up recently. I saw the tulle and just had to grab some - How could I say no? Isn't it just a fun, whimsical touch? I love it. Expect to see more, much more! haha It was a giant roll. I also picked up what I *thought* was seam binding but it was quilt binding as I found out after I spritzed it with glimmer mist and it didn't get quite as wrinkly as I'd seen elsewhere. No prob, tho - I still LOVE it and since I had to cut it to size, I love the tattered vintage edges. That's what I used to create the twisted flower on top of the tulle which I also layered with a Prima flower.
