FREEBIE: Inspirational Bookmarks

free bookmarks, inspirational, watercolor, ahnd lettering, tombow

Hello my friends!

Who here LOVES to read? Any bookworms out there? Maybe your wish is to get your kids to enjoy reading more? Well I've got just the thing for you today: FREE bookmarks! 

It's so important for us to take the time to allow ourselves a minute of down time every once and awhile and most will take that time to read. We don't always need to block off a ton of time but even if it's just fifteen minutes - hey, it's fifteen minutes to relax! ;) Having some time set aside to recharge is always a great thing for everyone around you? Right? ;) For me, having anything inspiring, whether it be something big or perhaps something as small and simple as a bookmark that has a little motivation on it or says something inspirational, gets me every time.

My daughter is the same way to a degree. She (luckily) has always enjoyed reading and never took much coaxing to do so, as she loves a good read just like the next person. When I showed her these designs she immediately said "those are for me, right?" LOL . . . of course they are! She loved these hand lettered bookmarks so much that she wants to include them in her gifts to all of her teachers this year for Christmas. (girl is thinking ahead, is she not? ;)

My hope is that they will inspire you to read a little more and a take a minute for yourself. Enjoy this 'eye candy' as you read your favorite books and put them to good use. Here's your FREE: 'Inspirational BOOKMARKS'!

How do I get these fun bookmarks you ask? Well it's simple, just a couple of steps and you are ready to use them!

Print out the file for the FREE Inspirational BOOKMARKS. I would suggest using a heavier card stock so they hold up longer. Then cut them along the border marks and you are ready to use them!

I don't think I will ever get over how great my Tombow dual brush markers blend together for projects like this. I love the look I got with these and if you want behind the scenes peeks at my designs in progress and what tools I use, just make sure to follow me on Instagram and see what I used here or even the beginning stages of this piece.
