I love to read! Just about every night before bed, I try to get a few pages done. I also love painting! So I took the best of both worlds and combined them into one….introducing my new Nature Bookmarks. These bookmarks are like little pieces of fine art holding your spot. For starters, I’ve come up with 4 watercolor designs to reflect the seasons…
Each bookmark is printed on 80lb cardstock and laminated, also comes with a tassel. These bookmarks are prints and not originals, therefore the colors you see on the screen may not match exact colors printed out.
Bookmarks are $5 each or you can purchase all 4 bookmarks for $15. That’s getting one bookmark for free! Shipping and tax is included in the price. To purchase, see the new bookmark page of this site. They can make great teacher’s gifts for Christmas…OH…I said the “C” word and it’s only August!
Ok, in other nature news, the first week of the Weekly Sketcher art and phenology project has been published. One post will publish per week for 52 weeks. Each post has a sketch and description on the weather and surroundings at the Little Red Schoolhouse Nature Center. It is my little historical document of the seasonal changes from Aug. 2009 – Aug. 2010. It’s a bunch of fun to see changes from week to week, I hope you enjoy reading them.
Lastly, in nature news, I will be hosting a free Sketching in Nature classes every last Saturday of the month (unless specified) at the Little Red Schoolhouse. You can read class description and find a supply list on the “classes” page. The next one is soon…Saturday, August 28th! Join me with your sketchbook and learn how to make complicated landscapes into simple watercolor sketches. We are all beginners so don’t worry if you think you are not talented enough! Hope to see you there.
