/Portfolio: Wedding Album Evija & Raitis

A custom ordered gift to the happy couple from the mother of the groom. She requested the color gold as a symbol for the wedding rings and ‘red roses’ as it was the wedding theme. The wedding album has a frame on the front cover to hold a picture of the newlyweds. I made two tiny ornamental books to complement the big one. It was my first time working with the color gold on this scale!

/Portfolio: Holiday Cards 2017

Written by Marenne on December 31st, 2017 | no comments

Every year I make a limited edition set of holiday cards with a technique I learned that year. This year, I made 30 cards, representing a window looking out on an abstract snowy landscape.
“The art of marbling has both frustrated and fascinated artists for centuries.” That is a line in the intro to The Ultimate Marbling Handbook by Diane Maurer-Mathison. And she is right. For the past year I have been doing my very best to master this craft but I am not nearly satisfied. But the book also tells the reader to let the medium guide them. With this in mind, I used the technique to create my 2017 Holiday Cards.
I made snowflakes out of clothespins and stamped them onto the back of the cards with some white acryl paint.
