It’s this time of year where we like to be more inside and cuddle up with a good book, right?! So let’s combine our passion for reading and coloring by making some bookmarks that help us keep track of the page we were on… Here are Hattifant’s Corner Bookmarks with Stars & Snowflakes perfect for this Season and new addition to Hattifant’s Christmas Crafts!
I very much love snowflakes! And was really excited about drawing them up. And then I stopped in my tracks and wondered… but how to color the snowflakes if they are generally white?! Well, you can either decide to actually color the snowflake. My son already decided to give his snowflake a rainbow look.
I decided to focus on the background! And that became interesting quite quickly. I used Prismacolor Pencils on the first as I love the texture and you can beautifully move from one color into another. The second snowflake background I colored with an ordinary blue permanent marker. It is simply very comfortable to color with one color and these permanent markers bleed nicely – not too much but enough that the coloring looks all smooth when colored in one go. I also have to admit that I actually like the smell of them. Do you?! 🙂 The third background I used Acrylics, a Magenta shade. And I already know the forth will be colored with my absolute favorite medium: Staedtler Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils. And no, I am not being paid by Staedtler. Ever since I received my first set of pencils when I was 16, these pencils have always been my top choice.
I created 6 different Snowflakes and 6 different Stars Corner Bookmarks for us to color and craft. See below:
