I had to share these. I have made girly bookmarks in the past, so it is about time that I made boy bookmarks! Well, I do but it is just that I do not post the pictures.
I have been trying to get my son into reading. What better way than to start with a bookmark!
He loves reading the" Diary of a Wimpy Kid" series. The image was from a free download that I found off the internet. I believe the artist is Dustin Pike.
I wanted to create a single layer bookmark for him. He doesn't like layers. Very simple, just a bookmark that doesn't take up too much room when he is bookmarking that page where he last left off. Grant's favorite color is blue. Anything that I make for him always contains a shade of blue in it. The last time, he was into "blue" blue. Now I think he is into the "aqua" shade of blue as well as his normal "blue".
The grass was the fun part. I used the Martha Stewart scissor so that I don't have to tire my fingers. It was a lot of cutting to cut out the sheriff. I customized it by adding Grant's name. The sheriff hat, badge and pistols were glossed up.
I loved this hippo. It was too fun to color him up. It is such a versatile image. I can see myself coloring this image in pink and turned it into a "her" next time. I also added the glossy to the cape and mask.
Have a nice day!
