But now let me tell you how easy it is to make your watercolor bookmarks and what to keep in mind when you create this beautiful DIY christmas gift!
First things first, get yourself some watercolor paper and have fun painting!! You should consider that you will cut the painting into bookmarks later. I painted a northern light landscape which is a perfectly suitable subject to be cut into pieces and still look amazing!
Now after you enjoyed painting let it dry completely before you cut it into bookmarks! You can even create round edges using a puncher you can buy on amazon or punch a hole through the top to add a ribbon! Be creative!
Last and most important thing to do!!
Sealing your painting to protect it and the book! There are sprays (I used one by schmincke) which are made for watercolors. You just spray it over your painting and let it dry!!
And taddaaaa you just made some easy DIY christmas gifts!! I hope you and the one(s) who receive them love them as much as I do!
