The wedding day came and our friends could not decide which marbled mat they wanted for their ketubah so they did what any good, non-traditional couple from LA would do ~ they had TWO ketubahs. Hey, if one is good then two must be great, right?! So they now have ketubahs adorned with Options B and C...exactly the two favorites you all picked!
As I mentioned previously, I gave them a total of six marbled mats from which to choose. They were able to narrow it down to three, which I posted here. And below are the three that didn't make it to the final round ~ though not because they didn't like them. I'm pretty sure if they had enough wall space for six ketubahs, they would have taken all six!
I learned a lot about marbling on mats this size ~ what you can and can't do, what looks better, the time involved to marble one, and more importantly, how much fun it is! If you're ever in need of a special gift (for a wedding, anniversary, new baby, etc.), you may want to consider a marbled mat. This is the fourth time I've marbled mats for people (this official document, two poems, and an engagement photo) and I'm always delightfully surprised at how beautiful it looks ~ not only the mat but how it enhances the piece it's framing! It truly is a one-of-a-kind gift!
