Marble Paper Valentines Quick DIY

marbledValentines.jpg

I’ve always been drawn to the look of marbling and was so excited the first time I tried this easy method for marbling paper and got a great result. Some descriptions for marbling paper make the process look intimidating and complicated—often involving oil, special paint, and tools. This technique, however, requires only a few things that you probably already have on hand: shaving cream, food coloring, and a baking dish. Zero skill is needed. In fact, I’ve even done it with first graders! It is such a fun and striking way to create colorful homemade Valentines. Be careful though, it’s addicting! ...catch this guest post and easy tutorial I did over at Four Hats Press.

@Artlexachung creating the perfect pairs! Two Spanish sisters, Sisters María and Beatriz Valdovín, are the masterminds behind this beautiful account. They describe their initial idea in an interview stating, "We are both educated on art and it's easy for us to combine her photos with the well-known masterpieces of Goya or Matisse. Sometimes it's so easy we have to wonder if Alexa was maybe copying their poses!" They are spot on with their combinations. Lovely!
