Gloria J Zucaro's "Bookmark Stack"

This week at The Artist's Playroom we are making bookmarks or other drawings/paintings/photos related to books.  
Here is my "stack" bookmark done in ink and colored pencil.  I will cut this out for actual bookmark use. 
  The style is called a “ pattern stack”.  Here is the original link where I learned about them.    My bookmark is not following the exact recipe, except that the different items are precariously stacked up.  It is just about reading & learning and sitting down for a cup of tea with a good book.  The flowers are something I would just like to have in the room with me.  You are just supposed to draw anything that comes to mind.  I often like to look on a map to see where something in a story is located.  
The apples are because I thought of “an apple for the teacher”.  

 It is on 140 LB. watercolor paper and is 8 1/4"H x 2 1/2"W
