Slow And Steady Wins The Race (My First Side Bookmark).

I had plans of making this since a long time when I first saw them but Couldn't, so when I saw the challenge on Meljens, I said to myself, this is the time I better start with corner bookmarks :). 

I had to make these for my Sister and her friend, they were really sick of holding the pages off their huge medical books with paper clips so they wanted something which was easy to use and handy.

My sister loved it and she was not letting go of it, even for me to take a picture and upload it on my blog :) . I had to enter this in to Meljens Challenge so I couldn't come up with something very fancy as my other card for Mother's day was also underway :).

As this is a Night time picture so its not very nice. I mite add the other ones if I am able to get that Bookmark out of my sister's hands :) heheh (she has it on her pharma book).

The image is an internet download, colored with normal color pencils. I have added some white and green pearl paint on it to give it a glossy look. Was planing to lacquer it but didn't had much time for drying it. The Sentiment is Computer generated and have added rhinestones to give a little bling :).


  1. A great bookmark! No wonder your sister won't let go!
    Good luck in your challenge!
