It was difficult to choose from such a wonderful assortment of images. However, I've developed a recent attraction to fantasy images and found a hungry little reading troll calling out my name. The image is easily resized for any project.
My favorite bookmark is one that hugs my page so tightly that even as I travel with my latest read, and inevitably drop it, my page remains marked.
IT'S DOUBLE THE FUN!!! Images, phrases and/or designs can be applied to BOTH sides of my favorite magnetic bookmark.
Here's how the printed page looks. Four bookmarks can be made from just one printed page! I want to have the image and words right side up after folding my strip of paper so I need to have some print upside down. I was also able to mirror the image for the troll to face the other direction and just needed to tweak Elizabeth's name/site tag so it was readable.
1/2" magnet strips are especially helpful here. I cut two 1 1/2" pieces to adhere to the inside bottoms of my folded bookmark. When I place it over my page, the magnets hold my bookmark securely in place.
What color is a troll anyway? Oh, the possibilities are endless! Being a mythical, mystical or plain ol' fairy tale creature, I guess it can be any color I want it to be. I filled one image using some earth tones. I filled the image on the other side using shades of purple. I'm not concerned about the ink from the markers bleeding to the inside of my bookmark since it's covered when closed anyway. I airbrushed a frame around the outside of both sides of my bookmark and adhered the magnets about 1/4" from the bottom of each side.
My bookmark is ready for duty.
Which troll will greet me each time I open my pages? Will it be purple? Or, green?
