Watercolourist Puts a Bookmark In It.


Bookmarks are something I use often.  I have also been known to use envelopes, old airline tickets, clothing price tags and other packaging materials as bookmarks when in a bind (ha!).  When I began painting I felt I couldn’t just throw away scraps of paper and didn’t feel right wasting left-over paints (either watercolour or acrylic).  So I started creating my own homemade bookmarks.  At first I simply splashed paint on a larger sheet of watercolour paper and then cut it into bookmarks.  Later on in the process, I approached each bookmark individually.  I thought I would show you a few of these today as I was unwell most of the day and couldn’t complete a journal page.  So here they are, enjoy with love and literacy in mind.  Keep on reading and keep making art!
