Getting all Artsy

Julia found this project in a craft book. It was a fairly simple concept... roll some marbles around in paint, but it turned out to be lots of fun and created some pretty cool pictures. They felt a little "Jackson Pollack."
I can only hope that my cookie sheets will come clean. :o&

The pictures below are some watercolors that I picked up on a whim at a small antique shop.
The lady gave all four of them to me for 15 dollars! It was such a good deal that I bought them without having really looked closely at them or knowing where to put them in my house. I just knew that I wanted them. After some consideration, I knew exactly where they belonged. There had been a big blank space above my couch for far too long, so there they went.

Beware of bouncing marbles... we had a few. This may be a good outdoor activity.
