Marble



My love of marbling has been renewed. At an art class in primary school, we dyed some cotton – I can't remember the process exactly, except that I was so enchanted by the result that I've kept a considerable swatch and still can't bear to use it.

This anecdotal mood was brought to you by Alain de Botton, whose eloquent sentences I have been reading all afternoon in this gratefully embraced sunshine.

The amazing cushion is by JF & Son via Anne Louise.

marble can be so good, or SO bad (file with: handpainted silk scarves, muffins and tom hanks movies)

both these pieces - especially the cushion - fall into the GOOD category...

Marbling paper is so much fun! We did it in highschool, and it was the only project that actually engaged the other children. Fantastically good times.
