VIDEO: Make Some Easy Abstract Bookmarks!

Lots of colourful abstract bookmarks

Let’s make some abstract bookmarks! So this is a really easy but also fun and challenging creative exercise. Challenging because you are working on a really small piece and working with as many colours as you can muster to make these abstract bookmarks.

And of course the other benefit of these is that they are functional art too as you can use them in all the books you have on the go at the moment. Or give them to the rest of your household. Or if not how about saving them for when we are all able to go out again and give them to friends or pass them on as leave art to cheer up someones day?

Support and get behind the scenes, chats and exclusive videos! (Not sure what Patreon is then )
