Happy Valentine's Day!
I was going to go and buy little holiday chocolates for my grandkids but then remembered that I LOVE TO MAKE CUPCAKES! And why not use the holiday as an excuse to do so?!~
I tried a whipped cream recipe for the icing this time and it's so much lighter and not so mega-sweet like buttercream can be. I think I'll use it again!
Yesterday morning I also worked in my art journal a little bit. This time I did the background completely and then pulled out an image from it. It's fun how the face shape and body shape come together in spite of it all....not necessarily how I would have drawn them, but somehow they still work I think. That's what I love about my art journal...I don't expect things to look great or 'realistic' by any means, but they give me the opportunity to play with colors, napkins, stamps and stencils! It's like a little bit of artsy heaven :)
Hope you all have a great week!!
