Cherry Blossoms, Paper Blossoms, and New Shoes

At the beginning of the month, it was cherry blossom time in High Park. It was a bit of a gloomy day out, but the blossoms made everyone smile!

Here comes the park train!

We visited the zoo that day, and saw this very convincing sign.

Last weekend, I baked a sugar pie! Holy smokes it was yummy. I could have eaten the whole thing. Sugar pies contain the following: brown sugar, heavy cream. (egg and butter and a bit of flour if you want it to be firmer)

Pictured here are two giant poufs I made. The pink one has 10x the amount of paper than the blue one, and took wayy to long to make! You can also see our new curtains! (This picture was taken from below, looking straight up)

Lastly, I bought these new summer kicks. Very comfy, and no blisters!

Are you excited for summer?

Done School! Time to paint some things.

I have been so super busy these past few months, and I just finished school on Monday! To give myself a little break, I decided to spend some time painting some silly things on some paper I don't really care about.

 I used scotch tape around the boarders, and used crayola water colour paint on this card.

For this one, I actually used crayola markers, and then water and a paintbrush to make it all blurry like that. Then I used a black pen to outline the stars. It didn't work as well as I liked, probably because of the paper.

Here is a close up of the first one. The paint bled through the tape, which doesn't happen much when I use my other watercolour paper. The sun was impossible to keep nice and round as well, no matter how dry the paint was. I like the colours a lot thought! This was painted right on a card.

Here are two little cards that I made. The one on the right bled through the masking tape I used, and I think I'll spruce it up with some pen drawings on top. The one on the left is a drawing of the painting I did above! Silly. 

If you have any tips or critiques, leave a comment! I'm so open to feedback!
