I’ve been working on some embroidery projects this summer. Nothing serious. I just find them really relaxing. This one was for my sister for her birthday. It’s a tea towel.
For the 2nd year in a row my younger sister and I made a fancy decorated cake for ourselves for our birthday. We share a birthday (born 2 years apart exactly). The mushroom is made out of rice krispie treats covered in fondant. The snails are made of marzipan. The green is dyed fondant, but everything else was painted with food coloring mixed with vodka (my sister knows so many tricks). The bottom cake is the one from last year. I think this year’s cake is sooo much better!
Sorry for the lousy pictures. We ate it so quick. I only had time to take cell phone pictures.
Tim Walker's portraits are sooo amazing. All of them! I need to spend some more time working on drawing and painting people. I rarely do it. I am hoping to make it a part of my sketchbook work. And his work is so inspiring!
I signed up for a class at Camp Pikaland called Making Your Mark. Each week there is a different assignment. I am having trouble keeping up, but I am painting and drawing and sharing my artwork more than I ever have, which is exactly what I wanted!
