Hi! I’m showing you today three of my first listings at my Etsy shop, my dear Marble Paper Packs.
I handmade the papers, and digitalized them, so I could use them any time I wanted to, and didn’t feel a stitch in my heart if I cut any of them. They are one of a kind, and that’ s difficult to give up to any crafting, unless you can print them again and again.
I cut these blue and red ones for a sidetable I’ve recycled.
This is the result:
I painted the tabletop in a very dark blue and I filled it with sea style flowers and shapes, which I cutted from the marble papers. Then barnished.
Don’t they give the flowers the exact sea feel?
Other things I did with the papers:
I cutted a marble square and with my Silhouette Cameo I cutted some flower shapes in a contrasting color, and then pasted all on some wood coasters. Then I added resin on top to make them waterproof.
Stella Maris altarpiece:
Stella Maris is the patroness of the sailmen, so in this altarpiece, made with recycled wood pieces, She is standing over the storm. I added fishes, crabs, a dragon, and some fishstars made with marble paper. You can see how they add texture and color to any object.
In future posts I’ll be showing all the things I’ve made with the marble papers in detail, and show you the marbling technique.
In the meantime look at this post in Etsy’s blog and see all the things that you can do with this addictive technique.
