I have made quite a few bookmarks that I’ve shared with you all (here, here and here). Since I am forever losing them (or leaving them in the books I return to the library), I thought I would make a few more quirky ones to have on hand!

I stenciled an all over pattern with the Mini Believe Script stencil, black acrylic paint and a makeup sponge, to create a “book page” background.

I then used the Balzer Bits Eye stencil and a pencil to trace the eye shape on the bookmarks.

The colors of these pencils are super vibrant and blend beautifully! I use them on so many things and they are one of my go-to supplies.

Would you like to find one of these bookmarks in the next book you take out of the library? I always find it interesting what is left behind!

I link up at these parties!
