We're staying in the coolest shabby chic garage apartment in St Pete. 


Our friends, Rick and Angie, own it 


and their daughter lives here when she comes home on leave from her Army job. 


Under the apartment is what used to be a garage


and is now Angie's very busy studio. 


Two of my dear friends came over a couple Sundays ago


and we marbled fabric.


Angie has been experimenting with marbling for a few months now


and was a very patient, wonderful teacher in showing us how she does it.


Shown, are the pieces that I did...


photographed on the stairs leading up to the apartment. 


Believe it or not 


when we packed our 'must have' stuff, I included some plain muslin,



but my favorite marbled pieces were done on a vintage embroidered tablecloth that I cut up.



I'm totally looking forward to having a 'wet station' in our new house (more on that soon) so I can dye, paint, screen print, marble and play to my heart's content.


Create Your Life,



annie!

  2. Thanks Laurie. It was a very zen experience. I learned a lot about how the paint reacts in the alginate and may over-marble many of these. Some of them were the second or ghost impressions and are very light. You know me. I LOVE bold and colorful!

    1. Thanks Annie. I think Surface Design is my favorite thing to do! We're at a lovely Restaurant/Gallery called Craftsman House.

  5. Such beauty, such freedom...your happiness shines through in these colourful pieces of fabric. Funny thing, I was thinking about "marbling" my white paper with inks. You've inspired me (as usual).

    1. We are SO at home here. We love it. It's fairly close to where we'll be living. All the better. My Bear is doing well. Ready to be home. There's a slight chance that he'll come home early. He calls often and I love how close we are. Thank you Corrine.

  7. Isn't art FUN?!!! Those fabrics look great. I'm so glad you are able to find time to create and enjoy yourself in the midst of a big move. I'd be stressed!

    1. It IS fun. This in particular was very meditative to me. I'm not feeling stressed...except a little when I think of missing my Sophia and her little sister, Claire Bear.
