Step 0 - Create a Swatch Page
Before we get started, let's see how the different Mildliner colors react to water.
Swatch all the marker colors you have. You may be surprised how some will turn out and you may find a new favorite!
Step 1 - Let's Get Ready!
First thing's first. Prep your work area with all your materials and some paper towel so you can clean your brush when changing colors.
In this project, I used 4 Zebra Mildliner colors - green, gold, magenta, and blue green and a Clickart pen in black.
Feel free to select whatever colors you prefer and let's get started!

Enjoy and please remember to share your makes on social and tag @crafticland and @zebrapen_usa
Using the laminator feature of the Xyron Glaminator, you can further your bookmarks' lives by laminating them.
In this project, you can use 3mm laminate that will make your bookmarks sturdier and less prone to water damage and stains!
