By now we've all probably gone to a paint party where you grab some friends, a bottle of wine and create magic from a blank canvas...and while those were fun, there's a new craft in town you may not know about.

Let me introduce you to water marbling on silk.

Not only is it relaxing, you walk away with a new accessory.

Painting with Influence is a family-owned art studio in downtown Carrollton where the owners really want you to be able to express yourself and have fun doing it.

Water marbling on silk is the latest addition to the variety of art you can create at the studio. They offer classes for canvas painting, hand-built pottery, painting pottery, and fused glass.

Co-owners Helen Yoon and Jamie Marum said they had been looking for a family business to get involved with and seeing as art ran in their family, they decided to pursue this studio.

Yoon and Marum taught themselves how to create the whole water marbling process for their customers and have hand-built the tubs you'll marble in.

Even if you're thinking you don't have a creative bone in your body, once you get going, you'll be surprised just how much you're able to let go and enjoy.
