Marbling with shaving cream

 Adding drops of color 

Gently swirling

                                                   Pressing  paper on to swirled color

                                         Peeling paper off, this is where it gets globby but keep going
                                                    Scraping excess shaving cream off of paper

Printing is big at beehive
Marbling is also. 
This is a combination of both. Colorful, magical AND it smells good. 
WE could have printed all day.
We used photograph paper for a smooth glossy surface and finish.
Liquid water colors, shaving cream, droppers, scrapers and paper - you will need a stack!

Looking back over the 100's of images from the past year at beehive.

beehive quilts

This is us sewing at beehive's pins and needles class.
I was inspired after my friend gave me bags of really beautiful fabric.
Many many squares, pins, back stitches and snips later.. these beautiful quilts walked out of the studio. Just in time to curl up cozy with a book!
