Watercolour cookies and a smiley sweater update

I spent a few minutes this afternoon painting cookies. I've never taken to watercolour painting. It just doesn't come naturally to me. However, the idea of painting on cookies is one that won't let me go, so every so often, I get out my food dyes and my special food-only brushes, and have a go at it. Maybe I'll get better at it, but even if I don't, it's still fun, and the cookies taste just as good.

On the Smiley Sweater front, here's where we are:

It occurs to me that this is much the same process as getting a tattoo might be....especially those full sleeve tattoos. I'm adding bits and pieces of images and text that appeal to me, in a sort of collage. A wearable collage. The only difference, I suppose, is that I can remove my 'tattoo' any time I want.


  1. Cute cookies and wonderful sweater design. I am sorry your sweater has a zipper rather than buttons... I was hoping to see more PC buttons *TeeHee*

  2. Super cookie paintings, and the sweater additions, I can see that you might be wanting to do another one after this.

  3. painting on cookies sounds like fun and relaxing as well.

    Love your approach to the sweater. Looks good where it's going so far.

  4. Love, love, love your watercolour cookies! Such sweet designs and such lovely painting!
