Technique Time

Sorry this is so late, didn't get home until late tonight. But I guess its better late then never :)
I got this Technique out of the New Carol Duvall book called "Paper Crafting with Carol Duvall" its called Chalk Marbleized Paper.

You will need the Following:

140 lb Water Color Paper
Waxed Paper
Colored Chalk (sticks or squares)
Medium to Large Cake Pan
Craft Knife

Step 1: Fill Cake Pan with lukewarm water, you will want to fill the pan 1/2 way up.

Step 2: Using sharp Craft Knife scrape the sides of various chalks in different compatible colors
over water. At this time if you want you can swirl the water around a bit to mix the
Step 3: Carefully place the paper either on top of the water and carefully lift it up and off or you
can slowly and carefully slide the paper into the water until the whole piece is under
water, then carefully pull it out. This will color both sides. If you miss a spot, don't
Re-Dip it. It usually doesn't work.

Step 4: Place the paper on a piece of waxed paper on your work table. You will want the paper
to dry completely (I let mine dry overnight)
Step 5: When completely dry, cover paper with another piece of wax paper and press with a
warm iron. My 2 attempts of doing the technique, Its fun to do once you get the hang of it. The 2nd Attempt which is the one with the green and blue I like much better then my 1st attempt.

Step 6: Finish card or Scrapbook page whatever
you want to use the Marbleized Paper for.
