When I started thinking about what to prepare for a swap titled "birds of my neighborhood" I wasn't sure how to incorporate these raven stamps that are Alaska Native styled images. As I pondered, the Alaska native legend came to mind about the wealthy chief who kept sun in a box until the trickster raven stole it away and threw the sun into the dark sky, giving sunlight to all. So worked on sharing an interpretation of this legend and decided to make the design into bookmarks. Recently I bought some new distress crackle paints (weathered blue-gray stripes)...so all in all I had a blast with some new experimenting with this project.
Thanks for taking a looking!

I also made this pocket with Tyvek.
Some other new for me included experimenting including with inks on a firm textured plastic cover for a recipe card holder. The texture caused for several trial and errors opportunities. Overall the same princples work as images on transparecies. I used lumiere for the background here.
