HAND MADE BOOKS

MARBLING

Marbling is an ancient art; an alchemy of colour and pattern which produces a thrilling mono-print. It’s really not practical for someone living on a boat – it requires a stable environment,  space, enough fresh water! Did I say it was compelling and addictive?

I use my marbled papers in decorative bookbinding, in collage and for cards and gift items. I create unique and beautiful sketchbooks, journals and photo albums. Sketchbooks and journals have top quality 110gsm laid paper pages – one side has a tooth and the other is smooth giving a choice of surface that also takes acrylics and watercolours.

  6. Very nice work, both of you! How in the world do you manage the creative mess on a sailboat? I have a hard enough time in two studios!!
    Cheers…!

    • Thank you, Sheryl. We have to deal with the mess and put everything away in order to sail so perhaps that’s why it stays manageable! But oh, we’d love to have two studios … on board!

  7. Fantastic. And I can’t imagine doing this on the boat, but what interesting patterns you might achieve. Could be an entire new method of marbling! Happy creating.
