Oh, I am so frustrated with blogger! I had just worked very hard on a post, and then it lost it! Then I tried uploading pics again and it lost them! I am very, very aggravated. It's never done that to me before. Oh well, here goes another try!
I've always wanted to make marbled paper, so when I saw a marbled paper project in Mom's Martha Stewart craft book, I decided the time had come. Unfortunately, I didn't really like her instructions, and I didn't have some of the supplies, so I poked around on the internet and read many many articles on how to make marbled paper. Unfortunately, there were many different methods out there, from the traditional method with expensive specialty supplies, to a stupid kid's craft with shaving cream and food coloring! The ones somewhere in between there was what I was looking for, and eventually I just cobbled together my own, from what I had read.
In conclusion, I have five halfway decent pieces of marbled paper, and I have finally attempted to make marbled paper! Hurray, for me. :-)
