My mum has her own market stall selling crystals, incense, and many other new age sort of things. She has asked me to see if I could make some bits and pieces for her to sell.
I've been trying to design some bookmarks first, as I thought that would be quite simple. In fact, it's a bit harder than I thought. I have the basic patterns sorted, I'm doing bookmarks with the signs of the zodiac. It's just the materials and colours that I'm having problems with.
I thought at first I could use plastic canvas, but the amount of background I'd have to fill in for my designs was just too much, it would've been too tedious a process for me to make these very often.

I'm still not sure whether the colours are all right, and I'd appreciate any kind of input in that area.
