Paper Marbling Redo


Having the correct instruction and better materials provided a wonderful outcome with my paper marbling redo! I was so obsessed with marbling that I enrolled in an online class called Clouds on Water by Barb Skoog. So much better results than last go around!

Marbling on paper
Up until a few weeks ago, I had never heard of marbling, let alone Ebru or Suminagashi--ancient art forms from Turkey and Japan. I was totally amazed with this art project and I started researching and learning about the steps involved for this technique. For my first day of marbling, I chose to marble on paper, but you can also use fabric. There are lots of tutorials, videos on Youtube, and posts about how to do this.

Repurposed lamp and custom shade


Repurposed lamp with custom shade
This repurposed lamp with custom lamp shade was one of those projects I wasn't expecting. A friend and I were at a local shop called The Refinery in Opelika, Alabama, when this lamp caught my eye! The Refinery is all about restoring, repurposing, and refining! That's exactly what I had in mind for this find!
