Belated Marbling Post

Hello!  In early October (I think -- it's been so long!) I took another marbling class at the Textile Center.  The last time I took it, I was pregnant and couldn't do the alum spray, so this time I had the full participation experience.  I seriously love marbling...most things come out so nice.  Anyway, here are the end results...


There was some map paper to marble and that turned out kind of interesting:

But my absolute favorite thing to marble is sheet music:

There was one piece of fabric that came out well:
Of course there was some green sludge in my tray and that appeared on the fabric.  Another piece of cotton had some air bubbles, so it's not perfect:

I have a bunch of other stuff that came out kind of ugly:

Meh.  I don't know.  I also marble a piece of ribbon and a piece of leather, but I haven't taken pictures of them yet.  I would love to set up my own marbling station in my house, but I have a feeling that I would make a major mess.

So what should I make with all of this?  I was thinking some more bookmarks for my little free library.  I don't know what else.
