Bookmarks galore! (Part two)

Here is the first third of the 334 bookmarks I made as gifts for the zenAgain event. Even this may be overload! I took photos as they were completed, in groups of 32 because that's what fit on the surface I used for the photography.
The rest are coming later!
The first post about these bookmarks, where I show some of the varieties, can be found here.

    Gorgeous! I know they are snippets of larger pieces but they are individual works of art. I love them.

  2. Dear Margaret, you have inspired me once again. Your style and use of color is wonderful. I have learned a lot about my own style through seeing your work over the years. These bookmarks have some reenforced a couple lessons learned: anything is possible one stroke at a time, view each piece as a whole and as individual parts, my work is valuable to me and to those I share it with, zentangle can be used as an element of any pieçe of artwork, and every tile/page is worth saving for another day/another project. Absolutely gorgeous pieces! Thank you for sharing your work yet again. I enjoy opening each post.

I am quite sure that every single tangler who received one of your spectacular bookmarks is thrilled to have a piece of your original art. Thank you for your generosity in posting these photos. I will return often for inspiration!

    1. Hi Leslie. All these bookmarks are strips of paper left over from other projects or unsuccessful artwork that I cut into bookmark sizes.

    1. I expected some of the people who receive one might try to find there is in the mass of other ones! Glad you managed. :-)

  10. I enjoy just about anything you do! These bookmarks are so cool to look at as a whole series, and as a whole piece of art, and each single one at a time. Margaret, you are so prolific too! I know they weren't done separately, but they each stand on their own just fine. I love that you share so much of your art and yourself with us. I know that I gain so much from it. Thank you.

    1. Thank you Karen! Some came about by cutting up other work, but many are single entities; I'd say maybe half and half.
