7000 YouTube Subscribers Video Hop (Water Marbling + Sequin Shaker)

Hello, friends! Today is the day both you and I have been waiting for. It’s time for my 7000 YouTube Subscribers Video Hop and I couldn’t be more excited. Are you ready to be blown away with inspiration from amazing guest designers and eight giveaways? Be sure to keep on reading until the end of this blog post for all the details about the video hop order, the giveaways AND a discount code.

In this video, I am showing how to create a marbled effect using nail polish and water. It’s an easy and fast technique once you get the hang of it. Be sure to use filtered room temperate water and a nail polish that’s not too thick or too thin. Simply fill a plastic container and add droplets of nail polish by holding the brush very close to the water’s surface.

Water marbling + a sequin shaker by Laura Sterckx.

For this special occasion, I decided to create another sequin shaker! I used a beautiful die from Winnie & Walter as the main part of the shaker. I wanted the sequins to match the marble piece perfectly so I grabbed a bunch of sequins from both The Ton and Pretty Pink Posh. Both shops offer beautiful sequins in a huge variety of colors. I love using them, but you probably already knew that, right? 🙂


The video hop starts on my YouTube Channel (the video you just watched above) and then every video will end with a link to the next stop on the hop. These links can be found in the video descriptions. You should be able to continue on after each video without problems. If the links don’t work for some reason, here’s a list of all videos.

Thank you to all of these wonderful and talented designers to join me for this special occasion! There wouldn’t be a video hop without you! 


In total, there are eight giveaways! In order to win a prize, you must leave a comment on the videos of this hop (comments on the coordinating blog posts will not count as an entry). The comments must be left by August 2nd, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. CST. I will randomly draw the winners, post them on my blog and personally email them. Good luck! Here’s a list of all prizes:
