Add ribbon to complete your project

In this video, you can complete several bookmarks using mixed media techniques on watercolor paper. By using one large sheet, you can have fun decorating one sheet and then cutting in up into many pieces. You will be ready for summer reading and have a few extras for gift giving.

Follow along and complete a layout in less than 10 minutes (plus drying time)

The layout was completed using a range of moulding pastes and other similar products, Derwent Inktense blocks Dylusion Sprays, Liquitex Acrylic Inks, stamps, stencils and papers, as well as other items.

Add texture by applying scrapbook paper of your choice. Additional depth is achieved by adding white acrylic paint through a stencil of your choice.

    These are beautiful and so fun! What kind of label paper did you use for the backing? Did not quite catch if that was a full sheet or individual labels. Thank you!

  2. @sue I used a full sheet of sticky label paper for the backing. It has a glossy finish and was easy to cut and apply to the back.

We would love to hear from you
