Bookmarks

Angela Porter 25 August 2018

I’ve been playing around with a different kind of material and techniques and created these bookmarks. I’ve had a bit of fun doing them, something different, the same kind of drawings but different techniques.

I’ve used parchment paper and various ball tools to draw the images and Tombow Dual Brush markers to colour them.

I like the one on the left a lot. Surprisingly, the more muted, pastel tones really appeal to me.

I do have other bits and bobs of parchment here that I’ve tried things out on, and there’s some skills to develop for sure; but it’s a nice way of working, to draw in white on white then add texture and colour. I don’t think the textures show well on the photos though.

A nice way to spend a Bank Holiday Saturday – being quietly creative and learning new stuff at the same time.
