January Header: Rippling Beauty

Happy New Year! I want to thank everyone who stopped by this blog in 2014 and shared with me the joys of marbling and my marbling adventures. Your comments, emails, purchases, and ongoing support fuel my desire to "bring marbling to the masses," and I am honored to have you join me on the journey. I have so many amazing things planned for 2015 so hang on...this is going to be one heck of a ride! This month's header comes from this piece of marbled fabric:

It had never occurred to me to try the Spanish marble, a centuries-old traditional pattern, on fabric before I took my Alternative Marbling class from Elin Noble last spring. I don't know why I hadn't done it before because now I think it's one of the more beautiful patterns to do on fabric. And then when the talented Jeanie Joe got a hold of this particular piece and turned it into a stunning purse, well, I was blown away.

Marbling on fabric is much more time intensive than marbling on paper ~ there is more prep work and a lengthy post-marbling curing process that needs to be done to make sure the paint stays on the fabric. I will be offering one or two (depending on demand) fabric marbling classes this year. If you're interested, be sure to sign up for my eNewsletter to get the latest updates on class announcements.
