Marbled Animals

I took an acrylic paper marbling workshop and later found all these shapes within one of the sheets I'd made. The background is stamped ink patterns that I made by rolling textured beads on the stamp pad & then in lines onto the paper. I had made the beads years ago but had never used them to make jewelry. - C. Mehrl Bennett

Little book edition from my marbled critters project. This begins with an 8″x8″ inkjet print of nine scanned images (there are about a dozen total, cut from one sheet of marbled paper). Once I spray with clear acrylic/UV protectant & make strategic cuts, it will fold into a 2.55″ x 2.55″ booklet. If I unfold it at the center it will mail nicely in a first class envelope.
