Aren't these adorable? Part of a huge tiered cake. Of course, I had to take a picture of them for Tea on Tuesday. Right now I wish I had that big white frosting rose, boy does that look good.
Bakery, good bakery frosting on a cake, yummmmmmmmmm.
I had my Earl Gray this morning and then off to VOTE. I was surprised to find by 9:00am I was number 156 at my local voting station. I'm glad to see that the Town of Verona voters take this seriously and got out there to VOTE.
I'm over working in the studio this morning. I just finished putting the second layer of texture on my canvas for the Texture class. I always feel a tiny bit sad when I cover up a layer but then I remind myself that I know what's under there, so it's all good. Actually, when I'm done with this technique I'll be able to see all the layers which is kinda neat. One of the stencils that I used on the first layer had a random brick type look to it. The brick shapes were different sizes. I filled in a number of them with Metallic copper transparent paint and when it dried it looked like bits of glass embedded in the canvas, very cool. Pictures when I'm all done.
I also started working on the Fiber piece for the Mixed Media & Fiber Arts group that meets locally. Our little group decided to do a joint project, different size canvas board, wrapped with whatever techniques we wanted to use. They will be all hung together, on a wall with a single squiggle piece, in black winding it's way across parts of all of our canvas boards. Confused?
Yeah, it might be one of those things you just have to see, at the end, you know?
I did some hand stitching on my November Full Moon Art Doll while watching Castle, last night.
I probably need to get myself one of those tight hand gloves with the tops of the fingers cut off.
My fingers and palm of my hand get so sore when I crochet or hand stitch. I tried soaking them in hot dish water before I stitched but they still hurt. Now, I wish I had done more hand work when I was younger. Honestly, where is the handbook (no pun intended) you should get when you are born that tells you when body parts are going to stop working right?
Enjoy your cuppa, today.
It's another beautiful fall day here. I want to play not do grown up work like raking garden beds.
:)Bea Do not put your least favorite crayons in the back row, they have feelings too, you know.
