I really need to get going on my book. April hit me like a brick wall, but I finally have a lot of time to finish my project.
I purchased and gathered all of my final materials, as well as practiced marbling the paper. I left my practice pages at my parent’s home, so unfortunately I have no photos to share. I tried creating scenes and pictures with the ink, but it just came out looking like swirly blobs. Instead of painting the scenery into paper, I think I will stick to creating textures and the right colors with the marbled paper. Honestly, the best part of the project so far has been making the marbled paper on my porch.
Planning wise, I have all of the pages planned out as well as how they will look in origami form. YouTube and Pinterest have been great places to find origami tutorials. It seems everything can be made from Origami, which is really neat.
I’ve set aside a couple of hours every day this week and the entire weekend to finish my book. Excited to finally have a final product!
