Marbleized Paper Bookmaking

“All human beings are born with an innate desire to create. The universal language of art often helps us discover and express things that we don’t have words for.”

- Patty Rass

Create marbleized-paper for a cover and accordion-folded pages to make a book for a personal journal or gift. Part of the contemplative experience will be filling the pages of your book with whatever materials or writings you choose: favorite scripture passages, personal affirmations, photos of loved ones or favorite scenery.

Fashion this lovely memento for yourself or as  a gift. Bring along photos, texts, quotes, or other items for your journal or book.

The pages are four inches square, but there are also smaller triangle pages that can be written on or decorated. Simple materials and methods will be used and no experience is necessary; bring your willingness to open your heart and be surprised!
