SOMETHING NEW


Learning to cope with new situations is something I find extremely difficult. HOWEVER, learning new skills or new areas of knowledge is fundamental to my well-being and happiness. For example, I had my first tap dancing lesson today, and that's something I've always longed to do.

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a day with my friend Di at Joan Ajala's place at Brunswick Heads, making marbled paper. Joan's website is here. What a fabulous way to spend time, creating the most amazing patterns on paper. Joan follows and teaches very specific and traditional marbling techniques, and the patterns formed have particular names.I'm showing you some of the beautiful papers I made that day.

The pattern above is called Stones, and is the most free-form of the patterns. Below, in order, are Non-Pariel, Bouquet and lastly, one I made for fun, manipulating the paint by drawing with a bamboo skewer.

FANTASTIC ! Isn't it fun?
I had the chance to play with those a good many years back and I enjoyed that tremendously.
Your patterns are great.

Good to be back!! These are great - very colourful and clever.

I saw Juno when I was in Australia - and I totally agree!! Also saw Atonement which was wonderful.

I love these CabaC - you are so clever. I don't think I have a creative bone in my body but I know a fine thing when I see it!

They're just beautiful! I made marbled paper a long time ago, I think in fifth grade but I'd love to try it again, now that I actually might have good uses for the paper.

Although, if I recall, I did use that paper in my first ever handbound book, so that was definitely a good use.
