I absolutely love marbling on old book and dictionary pages (and maps and handwritten letters and ledgers too!). Sometimes I use them to pick up "ghost prints," or the leftover paint in the bath from the original print. But sometimes I set out with colors and patterns that match the specific personality of the page I am marbling on. For me, the point isn't to cover up the beauty of the printed page...it's to complement it...which means I have to be strategic in my colors, design, and intensity.
My most recent round of scrap packs include some of these marbled pages. Head on over to my store to get your marbled bag of goodness...and remember, FREE SHIPPING on all marbled papers, including scrap packs!
