Salt Bookmark 5
Wednesday, August 15th, 2012
I almost tossed this oddly-shaped little wedge of paper, but instead I blunted its tip and messed about with pens to make this bookmark. It’s a bit like an optical illusion with the wobbly lines and erratic bands of green, not to mention the little floating salt bubbles flowing along some of the spokes. It’s signed on the back to keep from interrupting the pattern, which is too mesmerizing to spoil.
Salt Bookmark 5, 1.5″x5″ pen & ink and salt on paper.
Above, you can see some of the teeny little salt pools straddling the wobbly radial lines. Below, the book of the week shows off the lovely, thick white watercolor paper nicely.
