thing

It’s the sweet simple things in life which are the real ones afterall.
When I read that quote I had to think about cupcakes.
And as it happens I had already some stamped and colored cupcakes laying around on my desk (I think almost a year or so, I thought to use it for my birthday calendar but didn’t eventually, luckily I hardly ever throw anything away because it was perfect for what I had in mind).
I painted my primed page turquoise using a credit card, added gesso through a butterfly stencil in which I sprinkled some glitter (because what’s sweeter in life than some glittery butterflies??)
Then used my new made cherry blossom stencil again (just love it), glued the cupcakes which I glammed up with some silver stickles and the quote down.
As I stepped back and looked at the page I felt it was missing something so I added some more stamping in the upper corners, wasn’t enthusiastic about that so I added some pearl in some of the dots and think it’s okay now.


Thanks for stopping by, make sure to check all the other wonderful entries over here.

  9. Those cupcakes look delicious and I like that you saved them for later use. Sign of a true crafter. After all, who could possibly pitch such beautiful (and nicely colored) cupcakes.
