WOW! LOTS OF THINGS HAPPENING!  Ok I'll stop yelling, but I'm so excited.  January was filled with Art every day.  Maybe I should be posting it every day, but I haven't figured out how to do it from my IPAD.  Argh!! I'll get there soon.

I'm going to be teaching 3-D Art for Metropolitan Parks of Tacoma Starting 2/6/17  Woo Hoo!!  This is a canvas I did to show them a different type  of 3D Art.
We are starting off with Paper Mache, but this could be a future project. 

 On this project I won some ColorArte products.  and I was practicing with them.   At the Tope of the picture you can see a toll white bottle with Solution on it.  That is an acrylic solution and the little jars in from there is a yellow and green you can see clearly at the top or (gold) Those are powders you can use with water.  There is a video down below.

***Video*** down below.   Check it out it tells you more about the different colors.  I apologize if my video is kind of shake or strange.  This is my first try at a video and I wasn't sure how to correct it.  Here goes.  I hope you enjoy.

Finished results below.

I went to the thrift store and picked up some playing cards.   Woah Baby!! Look what I got myself into!! Journaling cards!!

And I've also created a book I have a video on it, but I'm not sure its a good post.  I have to see how I can post it maybe tomorrow.  

I received my Blity buys and started making some cool tags with my Tim Holts distress crayons!!  So cute!! and exciting!!  I made these in December, so it doesn't count as my New Years Resolution to do Art every day!!

In large bowl, beat together butter, granulated sugar, vanilla, and eggs, until light and fluffy. Beat in flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder until well blended. Divide dough into equal portions and wrap in Wax paper and refrigerate for a couple of hours. Roll out and cut cookies. spread out on a greased cookie sheet. Add sprinkles before baking and after cook frosting and add sprinkles. let sit over night with frosting on it in a tupperware and they are heavenly tasty!
Baking time: 350 degrees or (175c) Greased Cookie sheet, Bake 7-9 minutes.
While I'm waiting for the dough to firm up in the refrigerator, Im going to make my pumpkin bread, and other cookies recipes.
I'll share cookies pictures afterward.  This recipe is from an old Betty Crocker cookbook.
