Today we have been playing with the marbling inks I bought our son for his 7th birthday ( I think I got away with that!) We had a fantastic time swirling around the colours and created a huge range of patterns, here are a few, the others are destined for Thank You cards tomorrow. The only two downfalls were a. I bought my favourite colours not his (red!) and b. i didn't add quite enough thickener and so the ink did tend to sink a little. Other than that I think I'm hooked!
My latest print is inspired by the crows that wheeled and careered above the tall pines at Damage Barton. They completed these amazing dances each evening as the sun set, appearing to settle before all setting off again in restless choreography.
