Good morning!! It's a new week in Gosia's ABC challenge, and not only am I knocking out all of this week's letters in one mani, but... brace yourselves... I'm doing art. If you've been reading for a while, you know that I'm not a fan of it on myself but that I've made a couple weak attempts. As in life, I appreciate the abstract forms. Some of my favorite techniques are those that create marble effects. Water marbling is gorgeous but requires more time, materials, and effort than I'm interested in putting in at this point. Needle marbling, however, is something I've felt early on I could get on board with. This tutorial at Liquid Jelly helped make my first go at it fun and simple. Here's what I did.
I'm pretty stoked at the turnout. I used Milani White On The Spot as my base, Sinful Colors Dream On for the purple, and SC Summer Peach for the orange. Per the tutorial, I used two coats of white, let them dry fully, then added a third coat and a generous drop of the accent color, and went to work with the needle. You need to do one finger at a time and work quickly. The results are pretty neat looking, and I will be using this method again (hence the #1 in today's title, lol).
So how does this fit in with the challenge? The letters o' the week are MNOP, so I've got a Needle Marble in Neon Orange and Purple. :)
Thanks for reading!! :)
