“Hope is not a dream, but a way of making dreams become reality.”

Play It Forward Bookmark for Bonnie – 2″ x 5.5″ Watercolor & Black Staedtler Fine Art Pen
To start the year off giving, I became a part of Play It Forward 2013, thanks to Kana Tyler. She posted on Facebook that the first 5 people to comment on her post will get something handmade (or home grown) in the mail from her, some time in the next 12 months. The kick is… they in turn, have to play it forward and do the same for 5 of their friends. I love it! The first person to comment on my post was Bonnie. This little bookmark will be winging it’s way to Canada.
Inspiration for these bookmarks was found in the following reference books: One Zentangle a Day by Beckah Krahula and Zenspirations- Dangle Designs by Joanne Fink. I really intended to leave them mostly black and white with just a few little hints of color. Well, as you can see…. I couldn’t quit!!! I made 6 of these on Sunday. (I was sick, so I spent almost the whole day in my studio.) They will be laminated before I mail them off. 😀
About Cardinal Leon Joseph Suenens
Cardinal Leon Joseph Suenens played a major leadership role during the Second Vatican Council in the early 1960s; his reforms include reciting the liturgy in modern languages, expanding the role of laypersons, and opening a dialogue with other religions. He was born in 1904 in Brussels. Wealthy relatives wanted him to study economics and manage their fortune, but instead he entered the priesthood. He was witty and charming, with an enthusiasm for soccer. He died in May 1996.
