These groups really knows how to put the fun in fun-draiser! In fact, we made about seventy bookmarks in total, and I'm sure we could do the same again. Anyone want to join us?

Making your Mark...
... was a blast. A fundraiser project for the local library, it was organized for a couple of reasons - I had a need to reduce my Gelli print stash (with all the demos I do in playshops I had a ton of them) and I really like to incorporate creative play with volunteer work. We had two sessions, morning and afternoon, and some talented and enthusiastic participants. I'm pretty sure we made a gazillion of them. Well, it felt like it anyway, with all that energy vibrating in the Puffin studio.
The morning group of Val, Eileen and Carrie were on a tearaway right from the time they walked in.
Carrie was into black and white, and made sure to include a gent's bookmark in her pieces.
Val was intent on including all the colours of the rainbow, and I think she succeeded beautifully. You can see her post here about her bookmarking.
Eileen did some fabulous bookmarks in spite of saying she had no idea what she was doing!
The afternoon group included Laura Leeder who was on such a roll she finished 10 bookmarks! Check out Laura's art apron - there will be a future post about that as well.
Gay was just full of fun and ready to rock and roll at all times.
Eileen's first comment was the need to include some 'male-oriented' bookmarks, and she managed that beautifully, as well as inspiring me to do some too.
Eileen did these, incorporating all sorts of the mixed media supplies.
I think Gay, like Val, was also after every colour in the rainbow - aren't they lovely?
Laura's are just as rich and colourful, and I'm still agog at her doing 10 in a couple of hours????!!
