Episode 60- Marble Technique

Hi everyone!! Yep, you guessed it right..... I MADE A VIDEO!!!! I hope this tides you over for at least a few days. I'll try to work on something fun this weekend for you all. Have a wonderful day!!!

P.S. I'm still doing good with WW and am hardly ever super hungry. Today we went to Wendy's and I had a small chili and salad while my daughter ate french fries right in front of me. I was tempted for about two seconds and then it passed.


  1. Oh my Gosh how simple was that. Can't wait to see the next one.
    Hope the kids are enjoying there summer. Thanks Sweetheart.

  2. So excited to see a post from you - I just recently found your blog and I think you are fabulous :)

    Thanks for demonstrating the technique - saw it and it looks fun :)

    Well done on resisting the fries
    Keep Smilin' - Hugs Hev xx

  3. Thanks for this video!! Love your videos. Great job on the french fries!!

  4. Great job on resisting temptation from the fries. Glad to see you trying new techniques. Sounds like you are giving your pink loft an overhaul! Can't wait to see it!

  5. Very cute. It reminds me of when I taught preschool and we did marble painting. The kids loved doing that because it was messy and noisy! I will have to give this idea a try.


  6. Marbles.... Yes I have confinscated from my kids too. Easy tech!! thanks for showing. Well sorry but I ate your fries yesterday! I think it was the combination w/salt that I needed. Thanks for all you do!!!!

  7. Robyn,
    Thanks for the video and for thinking of us! I hope that whatever the "thing" is is going well. I am glad to hear that it is nothing serious!

    Have a great day!


  8. Robyn,

    Congrats on WW. I'm working towards my 10% goal. Only 7 more lbs. to go. I'm so excited. I love this video and it was so easy. Thanks for taking the time to do these.

  9. Hey Sis!

    You are too cute. "Don't worry everybody, it's not blood."

    Thanks for sharing this technique.

    I wonder how it would work with COMLIMENTARY colors (ie. green, blue, lime green), etc. Would it come out "brownish" still?

    Love your videos!
    Your Bro

  10. Awesome technique! THanks for demonstrating for us. Love your videos.

  11. Great to have you back even if for a little while.
    Love that rechique. My DD sat in on an art project at the bookstore one day & that did this same thing on construction paper in a cardboard box. I never though of using it on a smaller scale for card making. You are so creative. TFS.

  12. Fun technique! Thanks for sharing!
    ( I want some fries!)

  13. Hi Robyn,

    Glad to hear that it is nothing serious, but you have peeked my curiosity. I find it so cool that your bro watches and comments on your videos. I have to tell you that I bought an ATG yesterday and can't wait for it to get are an enabler (and thats OK with me!!)

    Take care,
    Joelle B.

    I've never seen or heard of this before. Thanks for showing it. I am so glad to see a post from you!!! I can't wait to have you back in the craft world. Great job at Wendys! It looks like you are well on your way. I think the first couple of weeks are the worst! Then it just becomes habit and what you do! Take care and see you soon!


  15. Great technique and video, Robyn! You know you have us all SOOO curious about what is going on!! (I'm hearing the Jeopardy "think" song in my head!)
    Anyway, hope all is well!! Thanks for thinking of us!


  16. This actually makes me laugh - I learned this in Preschool back in the 70's, we would take marbles and put them in a shoebox and put some paint in there and roll them around. LOL

    That is a cute idea, never thought of putting them on a card though...might have to get some marbles tonight LOL.

    Thanks for Sharing them Robyn!!!

  17. You got me wanting Wendys'
    Cool video! Looks easy enough even for a newbie like me.
    Thank you for all you do.

  18. Thanks for posting a video. I have been missing you. This looks REALLY fun but I got rid of my inkers so I guess I wont be able to play like this.!! Keep up the great work and I cant wait to see what you have been working on!!

  19. Just wanted to drop you a comment about your blog. I love it. I stumbled upon it a couple weeks ago and have been hooked ever since. I have added a your blog to my fav blog list on my blog.

  20. DS does this at school, but they just put them in paint and roll them at each other! :)

    Maybe if you did one color at a time, they would not blend together...

    Thanks for showing us this! :)

  21. very cool. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad to hear that ll is OK with you. Have a great weekend!!

  22. Robyn,
    Glad to hear it's nothing too serious. I hope you don't feel pressured to do these videos just for us. I'd feel bad. But, we all really enjoy them.
    Congrats on your WW success. I've lost 54 lbs with WW. It's been quite slow though. Two and a half years. But, I don't deal with temptation well. LOL. Well losing that much in 2 years is better than gaining it I guess.
    Thanks again for the great videos.

  23. Great video as always Robyn. I hope you are feeling ok and that all goes well for you this weekend. Take it easy.


  24. WOW....congrats on WW success! Keep up the super work! Great technique, thanks for the video!

  25. I love this! I was thinking that it would look great on a colored paper with ink to match. For example, I love blue so I would use a very pale or light blue paper with dark blue ink. Then you wouldn't have to worry about the brown result but it wouldn't be boring.

  26. Good to hear from you again and as always thanks for sharing another neat technique. Look forward to hearing how you are next week and pray all is well.

  27. Loved the video with the marbles.
    I lost my marbles. LOL


  28. hey robyn,if you close the box on the marble tech.then really swoosh them around,you get a nice image.(instead of roling the marbles in the ink first).


Thanks for leaving me a comment! I love to hear from you!!
