Marbled


How was your weekend? I had a delightful one, one where I taught my boys a bit about cleaning and cooking...here's to hoping they remember what I've taught and can help more in the future.


I'm playing along with the intriguing challenge over at Winnie & Walter's Gossip Column with Taheerah Atchia No. 6: Marbling. I attempted a marbling technique by filling a cake pan with 1/2" inch of clean water and then sprinkling a mix of blue and purple hued Color Bursts. I laid some watercolor paper on top and let the colors mix.


I then cut the marbled paper into a container pot shape onto a white card base that was sprinkled with blue ink and added some succulent based flowers from Winnie & Walter's Addie's Garden Stamp Set

  3. What a brilliant technique! I just love how you have layered the leaves so some are draping over the rim of the marbled pot. Have a fabulous day. Cheers Donna Z :)

  5. Genius idea with the color burst! It looks awesome! I did the same technique but with nail polish...messy!
