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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
