Bathing Beauty

August 28th 2011
The new "inspirational" picture at the Soartful Blog this week is of a "Bathing Beauty".


I had made this all fabric tag/bookmark using a Gecko Galz image for the Oh La La Group at the Bella Creations Community and thought it was just perfect for the new Soartful Challenge.


I bought the great "sparkly" aqua fabric especially for this bookmark as I thought it had an aquatic feel and was a great colour. The beach babe image is on calico and has been adhered to the tag which was sewn together on my sewing machine. I also added some blue braid to the top and bottom and made the little "Beach Babe" wording myself. I added some blue coloured fibres to the top and some sea coloured embellisments as well as a seahorse charm.
