In an attempt to make up for the forgotten Septmber Fadengrafik Challenge, and for being quite late for the October turn, this simple bookmark would be a quick sign of life somewhere between all the things that keep me busy in real life, as well as my contribution to the current "ATG" theme.
There isn't much to say about the bookmark itself - once again I used a simple geometric pattern which I stitched in two colours and is apparently becomimg my regular "bookmark pattern". It is just so perfect to decorate small leftover pieces of white cardboard that it turns out to be my first choice whenever it comes to recycling paper into small crafting projects. And since it's a rather simple pattern, too, it can be combined with almost anything I have on hand to cover up the stitching on the back side.
This time, I've chosen a super cute image of teddy bears from mom's aunt's stock of old calendar/magazine cut-outs (because she's an even greater hamster than me when it comes to things that "might be useful someday"). To combine the two lements, I glued them both on a dark red cardboard, which was another paper leftover and turned out to cover both backsides nicely.
A little contribution to the October collection of Create in Austria - artwork created by Austrians and/or in Austria.
With a wonderful summer coming to an end, it is probably one of my first autumn-ish projects this year. A couple more are waiting to be shown, as well as a couple of holiday adventures, but for the moment I just can't seem to squeeze more hours into the day - or rather, make better use of the time that is available.
For now, therefore, just a couple of autumn-ish impressions from park Tivoli. Lots of the trees are still green more or less, but some already display their colourful fall outfits.
As for the Fadengrafik Challenge itself, you're invited to link up your stitched projects here for a chance to win a cool prize by the end of the month. I can't wait to see what you've created ;)
