Global Bookmarks + A Winner

Gingersnap Creations Travel the World Bookmark Exchange
These are the bookmarks that I have created for the May Art Exchange on the Gingersnap Yahoo Group. What an appropriated theme for bookmarks because that is exactly what you are doing when you are reading. Traveling this world or another depending on the genre you are immersing yourself in that particular day. Right now in my personal reading I'm visiting the French Revolutionary times. 
It has been so much fun participating in these art exchanges. You get another artists work in the mail and who knows one of these days you could end up owning a very valuable piece of art. Some people do become famous. 
I went with England, France, Italy, and Africa. The first 3 I used their flag colors for a backdrop, but when I got to Africa I went with Sepia, Coffee, and black for a more bold feel. Hope my swap partners like what they get and I hope these will encourage them to have a good read.
Next up on the agenda, the drawing for reaching 76 Followers.  I have for you my own personal objective name drawer. He left his top hat at our other house so he had to use his Popeye Doyle hat. The name on the slip of paper is IndyBev. Email me with you address and I'll pop you blog candy package in the snail mail. 
Thanks again to all my loyal followers for all the wonderful encouragement and comments you leave me when I post my creative endeavors. I always appreciate you visiting and viewing.

These are so great! I love the British flag. I didn't do the swap this time and I'm regreting it now.

Congrats on your 76th follower!!
