Embossed Mixed Media Bookmarks

Hello there, friends! Linsey here today sharing my latest Craftwell project--some handmade bookmarks that are super simple and fun to create! These bookmarks are great for book, journal and planner lovers alike! They take very little time to make and are beginner level, which makes them a great craft project for kids too! Take a look....
I used my trusty SNAP Machine along with Teresa Collins 2 pack A6 Embossing Folders, Beautiful Words and Stars and Twill Herringbone to emboss plain white cardstock. Next, I put down a layer of clear gesso on each bookmark and let dry completely. Finally, the fun part....coloring them up! I tried something a bit different and used some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos to add color to each bookmark. There are lots of other color mediums you can choose to use--try inks, sprays, paints--your imagination is the limit!
I like how they all turned out totally different and unique to one another! The embossed texture adds the perfect amount of interest without a lot of bulk. A bulky bookmark is no Bueno! ;)
You can finish with painting a layer of Mod Podge or other protective sealant over the colored bookmarks to ensure no color smearing and a longer life span. These bookmarks add a pop of color and an element of fun to your daily life. I sure hope you've been inspired to create something pretty today! Thanks so much for stopping by an letting me share my project with you! Until next time, happy crafting!
