I started creating these bookmarks with leftovers from the quilted paper-cloth I made for the 4x4 exchange in September. I made the orange and yellow one today, out of leftovers from the second batch of paper-cloth. I was invited to participate in an art swap (really sort of a glorified chain letter) so I whipped up this bookmark. It will be going to Hawaii, and I thought maybe the recipient would enjoy seeing some autumn colors. I've added words and phrases to the front or back, which I think will help bridge the connection to the viewer. I've enjoyed creating with this paper-cloth technique because whatever I make out of it is something truly unique. And isn't that what art is supposed to be, a unique expression of the creator?
