Gone With The Wind (Scarlett O'Hara) Quote Bookmark
One of my close friends growing up absolutely loved the story of "Gone With the Wind." She convinced me to read it, and (to oblige her) I did. It was either despite Scarlett or because of her that I loved the story in my own right and became a bit of a rabid fan myself. (If you ever get a chance, visit the Gone With the Wind Museum in Atlanta!) Scarlett O'Hara is a feminine, dramatic, strong-willed, courageous and frequently hilarious woman. She made me wish for petticoats to be in fashion and to drape myself in blankets in make-believe (I stopped before turning 14, ok?) owing to a lack of spare curtains to be found.
When deciding to paint Scarlett, I asked my friend which dress she should be featured in and the picnic dress was the one selected. Because who doesn't want a picnic hat this large!?
This vegan leather bookmark features my original watercolor illustration of Scarlett O'Hara with the following quote: "Tomorrow is another day"
This bookmark displays my watercolor illustration on one side, and vegan leather on the other (dyed a rich black tone), stitched together to create a durable, 4mm-thick rigid bookmark.
