The children and I marbled papers yesterday morning. It took a while to get the hang of it but using the float dots that came with the kid was a great way to get the ink to swirl. We first tried on thin rice paper but it kept tearing and then I remembered we had poster board which was perfect. I've never made journals before but that is what these will become once I get some linen thread, needle and awl. We actually made a lot more but you can see four examples above. It really is a fairly simple project to do and the results are super fun. The paint shown below is from Amazon.
