Create a Galaxy Bookplate With Tombow Dual Brush Pens Galaxy Pack 1


Hi everybody! It’s Bonnie from Archer and Olive. Today’s project is inspired by an all-time favorite book of mine, “The Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy” by Douglas Adams. Of course, I had to use my Tombow Dual Brush Pen Galaxy 10-Pack. They’re beautiful, and perfect for today’s book plate project.

    I just bought my very 1st Tombow Dual Brush Pens Pack (Galaxy) and thank you for showing/sharing how you created bookplate. I can’t wait to give it a try. ChaptersIndigo bookstore in Canada has this Galaxy/Planet stationeries and I’ve been wanting to find a way to create Galaxy picture over a mousepad.
