This week we are creating a bookmark – you could look online for a Mackintosh rose template as a starting point – you could print and then trace it, design your own or take inspiration from something you are currently reading or listening to. Use watercolour paints, coloured pencils, pens, draw into it using a black pen, if it is waterproof you should be able to paint over it too but test it first! As ever, these ideas are only a starting place, enjoy yourself!If you have it, cut some nice thick water colour paper into perfect bookmark strips and design and paint on here, paint both sides – they should survive more than one book!

Have fun, maybe someone else at home would like to join in and then you could swap bookmarks once you are finished!
