February is certainly a month to look forward to. There is love in the air. It all about celebrating love, the most crucial emotion in a person’s life. Everyone is excited and thrilled as they are making plans and planning surprises for their loved ones. You can find people browsing through stores looking passionately for gifts and smiling shyly as they picture their dear one.
Valentine’s day is not just about buying material gifts. It is about wanting to express your love and that can be done by putting in your efforts and skills to make a piece of art.
Menorah’s Watercolor bookmark is perfect for you to make a creative and easy piece of art. The Watercolor bookmarks are 300 gsm thick and made of 100% cotton, so you can use many washes of watercolor and not worry about the paper warping. It works well with Watercolors, Acrylics, Gouache, Tempera and Poster Color. Since it is acid free, it is a great choice for gifting, as your art made with love will be preserved without fading or deteriorating over time.
Here is an interesting Bookmark Painting Idea by @pixie.artistry using Menorah Bookmarks:
- Menorah watercolor bookmarks (3)
- Sketch pen
- Round paint brush
- Double sided tape
- Letter stamp
Sketch anything that you would like on your bookmark for beginners like a boy & a girl, cartoon figures, cute animals etc. Once done, colour the outline.
Use another bookmark for the base of your card. This will be strip no. 1 and it is colored yellow here.
Take another bookmark and cut a thin rectangular strip of about 0.5 to 1 inch. This strip is the tiniest of all. It is used to pull and move the character.
Do not paste this strip. Just gently place it over strip no.1. You can colour it to match your first strip if you wish.
Take out bookmark no.3 and make a small rectangular cut like a window (smaller than strip no. 2) in the middle of the strip. This will let you pull your 2nd strip and see your character move.
You can color it in a different shade or leave it as it is. Stick this white strip with double sided tape, only on the length side. So, from the edges you can pull the 2nd thin strip.
Stick one character permanently on the 3rd white strip.
Stick your movable character on the middle 2nd strip. Note that the character should be bigger than the cut hole.
Write a cute message or a love note on the 1st yellow strip and not on the 2nd. Otherwise, the words would move and be hidden when you pull the middle strip.
Pull out your card and watch the magic!
