Summer Art Series: Paint Chip Bookmarks

Paint chips are inspiring, fun to look at, and free (that’s my favorite part right there). And if you’re new to Zentangle, it’s the perfect template, because there are several small shapes already created, you don’t have to do a boarder, you don’t need a “string,” and even if you mess it up and end up just scribbling on it, it’ll still look pretty.

I saw this picture on Pinterest:

and I thought DUDE THAT’S PRETTY. Except these were done with stamps. But I don’t have any stamps because I’m a broke college student. I realized I could do it with Zentangles, and it would be even cooler.

So I went to Walmart and got a bunch of paint chips.

But I touched it before it dried –_- Maybe micron pens are a bad idea on Paint chips

a mini-one, done with a different pen.

I went back to the micron later, and let it dry before I touched it. worked much better!
