Art Techniques | 30 June 2017Easy Dangle Bookmark Share article facebook twitter google pinterest A dangle is a string of illustrated charms you can use to decorate. The Art of Drawing Dangles provides tons of fun dangle projects, including this bookmark. When you’re drawing a dangle bookmark, begin by outlining the size and shape of the bookmark. Using a pencil and a ruler to keep the lines straight, draw a simple outline. Add a border with a pattern that is as simple or as complex as you like. Then, begin to fill the space inside of the border. Here, I have combined the words “Fly Away” with a bird escaping its cage, using the metaphor of reading as a way to escape the monotony of daily life. When you are satisfied with the drawing you have created, go over it with a finepoint pen or marker to highlight all of the lines. Then erase any pencil guidelines so that you have a clean slate for coloring. Now that the image is ready to be colored, it might be a good time to make a scan using your computer. Doing this saves the drawing, in case you color something incorrectly and need to start over. Use vibrant colors for areas you want to highlight and muted colors for areas that should fade into the background. Once you’re satisfied, cut the bookmark out, and it’s ready for immediate use!
