Watercolor Magnetic Bookmarks

I told Lynn that I make magnetic watercolor bookmarks and offered to upload some photos.  Most that I made were given away - these are the 3 that are actively saving places in the books that I am reading.

This is how they fit over a page when the magnet holds the bookmark in place and a scan of the magnet side of the bookmark on the right. I cut the magnetic strips just slightly narrower than the width of the bookmark.

Here are the designs on the right side of the bookmark - which are folded in half after painting.  I use 140 lb cold press watercolor paper and Winsor-Newton watercolor paints.  On the back side I glue on cut pieces of a self-adhesive magnetic strip as depicted above.  The final size of the cut paper for these 3 is 1 3/4 by 7 1/2 inches.
