pink wednesday cotton candy




Happy pink Wednesday! I did little pink cotton candy cones today. The cone and cotton candy are white and pink L.A colors art deco and the silvery background is pure ice A list. They kind of look like the statue of liberty's torch if it was pink . Its been raining all day so that got me thinking of happy warm designs and these seemed to suit that perfectly.

dragonflies , fish scales, stripes and lollipops






Hello! I've been painting lots of designs because of boredom so lots of new stuff. When I did the scales I was trying for a doodly look but then they seemed to say I want to be scales. On my right hand I did stripes because I tried to do the scales on both and it just didn't work.
I was going to have the bodies of my dragonflies dark purple but that didn't stand out enough so I changed it to the red. I used L.A colors art deco for the bodies and wings for the dragonflies and the scales and stripes. And I used the art deco for the lollipops too.

bombs , daisies, butterflies and pink polkadots







This week has been busy so I have lots of designs that I haven't had time to post 'till now. I was doing nails while watching myth busters and they inspired the bombs. The pink polka dots I painted today for my pink Wednesdays. And I did the butterflies earlier today before I remembered I needed to do something pink so they had a very short lifespan. And my daisies were done right after I went to the park which was filled with them. I brought a couple home to look at while I did the painting.

I started a new knitting project a little while ago and its coming along nicely but, it looks like I don't have enough yarn. Its a little shrug that goes along the back of your shoulders so I might be able to pass it off as a scarf. And the sad thing is is that the yarn I'm using is yarn I've been saving forever for the perfect project. And I don't have enough!

water melom and cupcakes




I took my pictures of the watermelon a couple days after I painted them so there's a little wear and tear. The cupcakes I did today for on Wednesdays we wear pink. They are one of the more complicated designs I've done in the last couple days. Last weeks pink was rushed because I have to leave early for town every Wednesday. So enjoy!

blueness



I made a pile of a bunch of blue things I found around the house. And I took the picture with a blue camera! Here's a list of all the stuff: a pair of blue polka dot shoes, a zip lock box, a paper lantern I painted blue, 1st place sparring medal, 3 balls of yarn, a chunk of fabric, Harry potter and the order of the phoenix, 2 skirts,3 shirts, and some pj bottoms, a box of Pillsbury fudge mix, a notebook with a lobster on it, my dsi, some sunscreen, a webkinz midnight monster, a bag of la choy show mien noodles, my blue stripe karate belt, a cup, Cd case, towel, one mitten, my duvet, and my blue laundry basket. And this may seem like a lot of blue stuff but you go through your house and see how much you have!

Lemon poppyseed muffins





I made lemon poppy seed muffins from scratch yesterday. They were really easy to make except beating the egg whites. I had to let them sit and spoon the stiff part from the top and beat them again. Besides that they weren't difficult to make. Here's where I got the recipe. The recipe doesn't tell you how many lemons to use and I had an extra big one and it still wasn't enough,so I had to use bottled lemon juice to get 1/2 a cup. So I would get three lemons unless you have bottled lemon juice like I did.

drusilla nails


I was watching Angel a while ago and really loved Dru's nails. She's done dark french tips and the brilliant red ones. I chose the red ones. I did a base coat of my red and swiped white along the tips. I'm thinking about trying this with other colors like dark green or maybe blue for a wintery design. The only problem with these was that the red kept bleeding through and making my white pink. But after a few coats it stayed nice and white.

Locks and keys




I just finished reading Coraline( for the second time)and it got me thinking about keys so I painted this. I painted keyholes on one hand and silver keys on my other. I was going to paint keyholes on both hand but I just couldn't do them with my left hand. You would not believe how hard it was to photograph the sparkly keys. The glitter kept blurring and after about a gazillion photos I finally got the one above where you can see them clearly.

something smells fishy




I've been thinking about getting some fish so I have fish on the brain. And I thought up these! I painted skeleton fish on my thumbs and shimmery kelp strands on the other four. I used white L.A. colors for the fish and silver for the kelp. And I used Orly indigo for the background.
