Amish Themed Book Marks on Etsy

I just recently tried to pair up my Amish art with inspirational quotes and create something that people could not only admire, but also use everyday.

I created a set of 4 bookmarks made from 4 of my most popular Amish pastel paintings. The paintings, paired along with the most lovely quotes, make a lovely keepsake for yourself, for part of amish themed gift basket, or given as a small gift of appreciation or thanks to someone. The lamination helps to keep the bookmark from fading and other damage so that their beauty will last. The background is a textured and aged wood grain effect to add to the artwork and quote. These pretty bookmarks measure about 2.75 x 8.5. I hope you like them!

(While you’re here, please check out the new beginnings of an Amish watercolor that is in the works in the post after this one. It will be an Amish girl in the peach orchard.)

I hope to create more products in the future with my artwork, I just wish I had so much more time!  I’ll see what I can do!  :)))

Until next time…

Amish Bookmarks by Cheryl McNulty

Please See My New Items On Etsy!

I just posted, and will continue to post , new and exciting things on etsy.  I just posted some bookmarks and magnets and will be posting some new designs real soon.  Please check it out at  http://www.etsy.com/shop/CherylMcNulty

I am currently trying to keep up on trends and see where my designs will fit in this crazy market.  Any input would be great.  I constantly ask myself, “Do I draw backgrounds, or leave white space?”, “Do I do animals, or children?”, Do I put wording, or leave it blank?”  I never can decide which is best.

Anyway, I’m here and I’m going to keep doing what I do best, and that’s draw and create.  Here’s a preview:

refrigerator magnets (little pieces of art)

Bookmarks with quotes or sayings

Bookplates- more designs to come

I'm going to be doing more with silhouettes!

Christmas ideas are coming as well!

So, there you have it.  Like I said, any feedback or ideas that you would like to see, I would love to hear them.  Thanks so much and please visit Etsy.  Thanks so much!  Enjoy!
