Getting back in the swing...
The papers were scraps from my stash so not sure of the make ,think they might be k and co. I added pink glitter glue to the red flowers on the pink paper and sakura glitter pen to the outlines on the blue paper for extra girly spakle. The fibres were from various raks and the beads on the charm from a set my son was given when he was about 3 so these are old as he's 16 now.
I coloured the middle flower with turquoise promarker and recoloured some pale blue glitter paper with the same promarker for the letters of Chloe's name so it would all match.
I thought adding a book mark was an added bonus, I made one for my son in this style as he reads loads and wanted another bookmark as he had 2 books on the go at once, don't know how he doesn't get confused, and he said it was a much better style than a slot in one as it stays put. I tried to keep the design fairly flat so it doesn't distort the book too much even though I did think about adding a matching flower cluster, I decided not to as I thought it might be a bit too bulky.
