From bad art to beautiful bookmarks


These are fab, Jennifer - and such a lovely idea :)

What a great idea Jennifer, they look brilliant!

Very clever!

Brilliant idea Jennifer, I done single bookmarks but never though of using a painting.

Thank you all for the lovely comments. Hate wasting art and time 😉😂. And they do look better as bookmarks. Dig out those failures and get them cut up. X

Super, successful idea Jennifer.

They're fab. It's hard to imagine that the painting was "horrific" but cropping can be a great way of getting little gems.

Nothing bad about this art Jennifer! Great idea.

Thank you all for the lovely comments. Ohh Roger it really wasnt very pretty as one painting, little slithers works soooo much better. X

lovely vibrant painting, turned into bookmarks is a brilliant idea. painting individual bookmarks with such large designs could have been very difficult. well done Jennifer

They are gorgeous 😍

Brilliant! What a clever idea and great way to save such vibrant work.

Hang on Studio Wall

Spent 4 hours on a painting that was just horrific to look at. So instead of wasting those 4 hours I cut it up into 12 bookmarks, added a little garden twine tassel, and bow think they look fab. I will give these away to key workers whilst I'm out and about. (Observing social distancing of course) to say thank you. Never dismiss a bad bit of art, it can always be turned into something beautiful. ❤
