Bookmarks Challenge @ Meljen's Designs!.

Good morning everyone and welcome to Challenge #211: Bookmarks at Meljen's Designs. I love making bookmarks and this was a  great excuse for me to finally make some!!! Here is what I came up with ... No.. I didn't just make one LOL:

I colored all of them with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol and they are all Magnetic Bookmarks so they snap around the pages. They are my favorite bookmarks with the magnets. They snap onto the page so they don't fall our or shift. You can't really find them any more, so I just make them now.

For the first one I used, "Write To Be Understood, Speak To Be Heard, Read To Grow." The image is Book Girl. I added red and black pearls for a bit of embellishment.


The second one I used, "Fill Your House With Stacks of Books, In All The Crannies and All The Nooks" by Dr. Suess.The image is Little Book Worm.I added some green gems to this one.

The third one uses the quote, "Dream It! Read It!". And I used the image Study Owl, which I turned into a chick LOL I added two different pink gems and the pink corner.

And last, but certainly not least we have, "The More That You Read, The More Things You Will Know. The More That You Learn, The More Places You'll Go." -- Dr. Suess. The image I used for this one is Dragon's Little Friend. I added some blue pearls and gems on this one.

These were so fun to make!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!!
