Day 2 Cookies

I did some research and wasn’t sure where I should go with this. I thought of cookie monster and some book titles like,”If you give a mouse a cookie”

Then I thought about making this personal and how I can put my heart into this and- well let the kind draw and play. I came up with this fabulous idea in honor of the awesome cookie decorating they had at Disneyland. I didn’t decorate a cookie per-say but my niece and lot of children did too. I enjoyed watching them and eating the left overs.

So here we go.

I am going to be using the paint method. My inspiration is Eric Carle. I should do a session on artists. Yes I will in the coming year-January.

I worked with a sponge brush and began finger painting. This would be great for kids to work on.

I took an old envelope and painted here and there- and how is this going to look as a snowman cookie?. I just had a some ideas but then I just went with it and here we are.

Hand Lettering 5000 or 10,000 times

1108151913a[2]I had a low point the other day with lettering. It is hard to keep your heart on the love and passion for what you are doing. You may get frustrated because you have a brilliant idea but the skills jut aren’t there yet. I drew and drew and then I thought I am going to keep things simple and decorate this jar. A little wonderland inspiration and my favorite color-well one of my favorite colors and here it is.  Never never give up!

Good Night

and just wanted to make a quick announcement that I changed my header image to a more festive one. I hope you enjoy it. Perhaps I should change to red for the holidays. Hit that like button if you like it. In a couple of weeks I will be starting the holiday 15 day challenge.

Creativity – Scribble Art

0820151844a[1]

Okay so why am I showing you this…pretty brave of me but here goes.  I put on a song- Querro Ser by Amaya Montero. This means I want to be and some of the lyrics in English are as follows.  I want to be a free soul, serene and clear. I want to be the verb can…

I learned about this type of scribble art through a skillshare class. You draw and let yourself go without thinking of what you are doing. Put on a song and scribble. Then after the song is over look at it and just piece together what you see. This is what I did and then I added some words from the song.
