I participated in the 15th and final year of the Bookmarks Infiltrating the Library System project organised by the Centre for Book Arts at the University of the West of England in Bristol.

Details of the scheme and the various contributors over the years can be found here (http://http://www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/bookmarks/).

I started planning my contribution in October 2016 and worked on it in between other tasks. I finally sent off my 100 bookmarks to the University in March this year.

Over 50 artists took part and I have now received my contributor's set. In addition, a number of sets will be sent out to institutions in Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, USA as well as the UK.

Full details of my process can be found on my blog (http://https://paperpaintandprint.blogspot.co.uk/2017/09/the-bookmarks-xv-project.html).

I printed my image onto abstract painted backgrounds, then added some detail with gold acrylic ink

Thanks Bridog. As I was using white gesso for printing, some of the results were a bit fuzzy, but I didn't mind that "hand-made" look.
