Today I’d like to share a picture of some bookmarks I created to quickly get to the pages of interest in my Filofax.
- Zig Art & Graphic Markers.
- 160 GSM cardstock
- Faber-Castell Pit Artist Pens
When you are designing bookmarks, it is important to be aware of how permanent or not your ink is. Lovely though they are, these Zig Art & Graphic markers are water based and will reactivate if they come in contact with moisture. For that reason I’ve only used them in the lower sections of the bookmark, not the areas you would ‘grab’ so the ink doesn’t spoil on your hands or book. TBH they are fine for this Filofax as the pages they are in contact with are replaceable but if you are making these for reading style books then make sure you use an ink that will not reactivate.
Pitt Artist Pens are waterproof once dry so they are perfect for this project and for using on the tabs, where they will get most use and handling.
Let me know in the comments if you would like to see a tutorial for making your own markers for your Filofax and I’ll get one written up for you.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
