“Sometimes good things fall apart,…” Handmade Bookmark

Have you noticed the truth this quote carries? Sometimes we see our world falling apart, and after it does, what we realise is that by letting go of things that no longer served us, we cleared the space for new and better experiences.  As human beings we have resistance to change, that’s why sometimes we have to face them in the worst possible way…

This time I jumped straight into my printed quote, trimming it down to 7,5cm, and inking the edges with Pearlescent Lavender ink.

After the edges were dry, I glued the quote with snail to the second layer, so I could know where to punch. I rounded the four corners, and punched two flowers above the quote and two below, with the Petite Petals Punch.

Using some scraps, I punched out eight small flowers, four of each colour, with the small flower punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes pack.

Using the yellow for the centre of the punched flowers on the second layer, and the lilac ones next to them.
