To marble your own paper at home you will need a large, shallow container that is okay to get stained (not pictured), shaving cream, a leveling tool (such as a ruler), acrylic paint, paint applicators (paint brushes, toothpicks, straws, spray bottle, etc), paper and toothpicks. Emily’s favorite paper to marble is a heavy weight cotton based stock, but feel free to experiment with different textures, weights and materials!

Step 1: Began by covering the bottom of her container with a healthy amount of shaving cream.

Step 2: Next use a ruler to smooth out the shaving cream, creating a flat surface that covered the entire inside of the container.

Step 3: Then selected the colors she wanted to use and mixed them with water. Stir the paint and water mixture until you have a milky consistency.

Step 4: Once you’ve gotten all of your colors selected mixed it’s time to apply the paint to the shaving cream surface. Using the paint brushes (or other paint applicators) lightly drip your colors onto the shaving cream, applying one color after the next until all of your colors have been added. Add using light drops of paint lends to a more delicate pattern.

Step 5: Now it’s time to decorate your paper! Yay! The idea is to pull your paint through the surface of the shaving cream. Created a homemade rake by taping toothpicks to a ruler and was very happy with the outcome, but there are lots of ways to do this step — so feel free to get creative. After you’re happy with the colorful design gently press your paper, printing side down, into the shaving cream.

Step 6: Finally, gently pull the paper up from the shaving cream. There will be excess shaving cream on the card, which you can use your ruler to gently scrap off the excess foam. Then lay the paper on a flat surface to dry — just make sure the design side is up. Once the paper is a bit dry to the touch, feel free to wipe any existing remnants of foam with a paper towel. Emily suggests mixing the foam up after each print and using the same batch of shaving cream about 5-7 times.

Step 7 : Continue creating more marbling masterpieces by repeating Steps 1-6. As you see the final result is utterly adorable and can be used for any occasion, these particular cards were used for a bridal shower.

Inspiration from Anywhere…Bridal Market Trend Watch!

bm4 bm3 bridalmarket bm2

Bridal Market is one of my favorite weeks of the year.  I love stalking all the runway pictures and coverage to see what will be popular in the upcoming year, this year what I am noticing is statement backs are hugely popular. Gorgeous sheer backs with embellishments, lace covered and asymmetrical…all of these details are being seen going down the runway and I can not get enough of it.  There is something so classy but still a little sexy about a statement back.  Every designer across the board seems to be touching on this trend. Shown here are some Instagram pictures taken at Bridal Market by Wedding Wire.
