FAUX PATINA BOOKMARK

Now and again I come across a technique that I just have to try right away - Faux Patna was one of them!  I watched a fabulous video on the technique which you can view HERE, and there is lots of gorgeous card samples you can also view.  I decided to get away from cards this time and produce somthing you can use or give away instead - a bookmark!

I loved this technique so much, I taught it recently to several of my downline at training.  I wouldn't be surprised to see it demonstrated at a few workshops now!

I love how this bookmark just slips over the corner of your page to mark the spot you were up to!

I can see I will be making plenty of these as little gifts.  Hold a workshop, be my Hostess and you can have one too!
