So, I have recently been doing some more drawing and a friend of mine said 'seahorses are popular', and thus I should draw one, lol! And so, as a bit of a challenge, I did. I then had the idea to try and make it into a bookmark type affair. This is the result.



The original drawing was scanned in to the pc, then printed out onto heavyweight paper, and laminated with 250micron matt laminate. Then, I hand cut the laminate around the image, and threaded some ribbon and beads through a punched hole at the top. The result is a bookmark which is approx. 12 or 13 cms in length. The laminate means you don't have to worry about getting sticky fingers on it (I read and eat chocolate at the same time, which can get sliiiiightly messy) as it's wipe-cleanable

I'm not sure the drawing comes across here terribly well (keep clicking through till you get to a slightly bigger version), but you can see the basic look of it, I think. It's done with Faber Castell pencils, and I *think* the actual drawing looks prettyish in real life.

I want to try making a couple of other designs, as well. At the moment, I'm thinking cupcakes, lol. And of course, now I'm hungry.
