Ever get stuck on something, like, you just can't leave it alone?
I've been painting bees this week. Bees have special meanings for me, like industry, busy-ness, family, prosperity, and others.
I have lots more planned. Lots.
I hope your week is full of busy-ness and good things!
Forever and truly yours,
When I'm creating a new soap, I have a picture in my head of what it's going to look like ~ A white base, with gold mica swirls and mint green to suggest leaves. Then reality hits when the soap misbehaves. I thought about putting this on into the zombie zoaps page, gut it's not quite ugly enough to make the cut.
Titanium dioxide is used to make white in cosmetics, and I use it sparingly in soap to make a whiter base. I use a lot of olive oil in my soap recipe, and it has a darker cast to it, so sometimes TD is necessary. But TD has a tendency to speed things up, as far as soaping goes. And that's what it did, made this soap move quickly. One second it was nice like a cake batter, the next is was soap on a spoon!
Good thing I can move faster than a speeding bullet. I also leap tall buildings in a single bound. Well, more like tall laundry piles in a stuttering trip. Hehe.
This coconutty fragrance is sweet, has a goodly portion of vanilla in it, so I expect it to darken some (though the TD may slow that down). It's got a hint of something like pineapple, but I'm told there is no pineapple in there. Check it out for yourself and see what you can smell. It's truly lovely. Or completely yummy. Or both.
What do you do for fun? Me? I do this. I'm new to the art and have room to improve, but I love it and love the way it's both calming and exciting at the same time.
So tell me what makes you tick. What brings you joy in your day? How do you love to create?
So if I can't paint apples ~ since some beautiful girl ate them ~ then I'll have to draw beautiful girls. This is totally free hand, which I'm not the best at, but maybe I can improve with some effffffort. Yeah.
For my daughters who love apples...
I love painting. It does something good to my brain that no zombie can undo. Well, at least I don't think any could. Hm. Let's not try that theory out and just call it good, okay?
There are two apples in my watercolor study because my daughter ate it before I could make a third painting. She was so cute ~ "Mom, I'm a predator and it was all by itself. Rawr!!"
That girl loves apples like zombies love brains!
I hope your day is lovely. Ever yours ~ AnaBanana
