#1 Marble Stationery
With Filofax soon to release their new range of Marble patterned planners (keep an eye on our website for these in the coming months), this is set to be the new big trend of 2018. We thought we'd add a touch of marble to our stationery sets with this easy craft that makes letter sending that bit more fashionable.
All you need is some ink (you can purchase marbling ink but any water-based ink should work fine), some water, a paint brush, a shallow tray, paper to add the marbling effect to and a paper towel.
Firstly fill the shallow tray with about 2 inches of water and dip your paintbrush in some ink of your choice. Then slowly put the brush with the ink on it on the surface of the water. Experiment with this technique as the longer you hold your brush down the larger the rings of ink will be, creating different effects. Then dip you paint brush in soapy water and gently touch the surface of the water with this brush. This will move the ink to the outside of the tray leaving a circle in the middle for more ink to be placed.
Add different colours of ink, alternating with the soap water until you havea mixture of colours you like. Then simply place your paper on the top of the water for a few seconds until the ink has caught, lift it out and dab it gently with the paper towel.
Once its dry you should have a lovely marbling effect on your paper and are ready to send beautiful letters or cards to your loved ones. Find out more about this craft here!
