My first set was simple, and happy and fall....
So this set...well I went a little Tim Burton....or maybe I flatter myself.....But it kind of reminds me of a Gothic Alice and Wonderland....
I really like these. I was on the line about them...hubs thought they just looked dirty...then I had to admit to him that that was sort of the point...it's meant to resemble old wallpaper or something that's getting that black around the edges. Like a house that was once bright and colorful....gone dark
.....Kind of like Alice in Wonderland gone bad...I mean I really have no other way to describe it.
Now I don't know why I chose this direction for the Go Bo Bake Sale Round 2....I suppose I should have gone with something cute...and sweet.... and all happy.
But it wasn't talking to me. This was. So here it is. A dozen hand painted and shaded cookies.
Now for a little reference to the shading on the edges....it could be accomplished with either an airbrush (I did find out on
you should follow me on Instagram if you don't already
...that Americolor does make black airbrush color) or by shading with petal dust. I did both depending on the shape. The bats were mainly done with charcoal black petal dust, there the pumpkins and "B"s were airbrushed...here and there I mixed the two. Anything to get the effect I was looking for.
Anyway....off they go to the bake sale!! And I hope they fetch a good price for the Foundation! It was an honor to participate in the bake sale this year!
