Making a Mark

For my August project as part of the Roc Nicholas Rubber Stamp Design Team, I made a bookmark featuring the Roc Nicholas Scooter Girl stamp. I made the bookmark so I could participate in the
Roc Nicholas Rubber Stamp Altered Bookmark Swap on Facebook. (Click on the swap link to join the page so you can participate in upcoming various altered art/stamping swaps.)
I used pages I'd painted with acrylics, added some decorative paper, and then applied the Scooter Girl that I stamped on different paper, and then added a whimsical hat. I  then used various markers, pan pastels, and watercolor crayons to finish the piece. Lastly I added some vintage text and fun fibers.
I tried to use elements that represent the journey books take us on.
