Bookmarks


Well, I decided to make some bookmarks. For my first attempt, I think I did a good job. It was really difficult to decide exactly what I wanted to do so I just gathered up some supplies and experimented. 

Supplies:

  • Cardstock
  • Stickers
  • Sequins
  • Glue
  • Glitter Glue
  • Washi Tape

This was my first one. I used washi tape for the border, 3 skull stickers, and sequins. For added texture, I used a silver metallic marker to make dots in the background. I did this bookmark with someone in mind, but until I modgepodge a beautiful backing, I couldn’t possibly give this away. 

The second bookmark I made was more artistically challenging.  I decided not to use any stickers, but instead draw some flowers. The border was especially fun to do. I used metallic markers and then I added a little glitter glue to add some sparkle. 

All in all I think they turned out pretty cool and I can see myself making more of these in the future. The only thing I would chamge is thay I would like to cut them in half long ways because they seem to wide for a normal bookmark. I would also like to add words to them or quotes that promote healthy reading. I am also hoping that these bookmarks could be used in artistic journals as well.

Have you ever made Bookmarks? What supplies did you use? Do you have a favorite word or quote that you would like me to try on a bookmark.

Very Big Sketchbook – Page 4


Oh, Mandala decorated with washi tape. I havent used washi tape too much in the past but I really like the way this turned out. This Mandala is really detailed. Even the tiniest flick of the pen created depth. 

I did try something a little different in the center. I usually create a larger center. With this mandala, I wanted to take the detail all the way through. 

I would love to know your thoughts on this piece, including the addition of the washi tape. Would you like to see more of this or do you have other ideas?
