Experimentation....and Learning New Things

Lets just say that this summer so far has been one of experimentation and learning new things. Experimenting with the things that I already have and going into my studio with no agenda other than play. Talk about good times!!

As for learning new things....I took a class and we played around with Suminagashi (marbling) and oh my gosh!! I was in love, so I of course bought the kit of inks and and the adventure begins!! I have never played with marbling papers before, but this is soooo easy!!!
I have had such a fun time with this!! Its addictive. I just love learning new things....honestly I do, even though learning new things sends me straight to a cash register to purchase everything that I see!
I hope that you will spend some time either experimenting with things that you already have and using them in different ways than you originally learned...or learn something new...you won't be sorry.
With all of the online classes going on now, we don't even have to travel to find fun and exciting classes.
Until next time,
Ophelia

I know what you mean about loving to learn new things! It's always so exciting. Marbling has always intrigued me as well... one day I'll have to give it a whirl!

These are gorgeous!! I love to try new things too and get carried away with the art supplies. It's like having new toys right?!?!?

Oh yes! I have that kit too - only tried it once and now maybe I'll pull it out and use it again. Very pretty papers you produced!
