I actually made three bookmarks, and I will be sharing each one in a separate post today. I got the idea to make the magnetic bookmarks after watching this video here.
Instead of using patterned paper scraps as in the video, I created a cool background with Distress Oxides on scraps of Photo Paper. I layered each colour using the watercolour ink-smooshing technique and dried in between each colour. It's best to work from lightest colour to darkest. When finished layering the colours, it had a dull appearance but when wiped with a baby wipe, it became vibrant like you see here. This is a new technique to me - I was inspired to try it after watching this video here.
Die: Gina Marie Stitched Rectangle
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Oxides (Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac, Iced Spruce, Blueprint Sketch, maybe others, I was playing)
Other: Neodymium Disc Magnets 5mm x 1mm (ebay), photo paper scraps
This photo shows how the bookmark looks when open and where the tiny magnets have been affixed behind the inky panels (approximately):
Here's how it looks in a book, held securely in place:
Thank you for looking at my bookmark! Wishing you a joyful day!
