Spring JOY Decorated Cookie Collection

Spring……what joy it brings.

Continuing on my quest of creating cookie themes promoting what is true, pure, right, lovely, & excellent (Phillipians 4:8), here is the Spring JOY collection.

It was really fun to pick out aspects of spring that bring such joy. Don’t you just love the idea of new life, flowers, growth, and gorgeous colors after the winter?

As we enter into this new season of life…..
HAPPY SPRING!

WaterColor Decorated Cookies

Ever since I was in The Painted Box (Angela Nino)'s class at CookieCon2017 I've been itching to do some "watercolor" designs on cookies. The fact that she uses my glaze recipe for her "canvas" means I've got a head start.

Angela was gracious to make a YouTube video about how she creates her "watercolors paints" for cookies. After watching it a few times, I quickly purchased some glass stopper bottles, strainer, glass funnel, half pint mason jars, and some EverClear. 

Angela makes it look super easy. I have no idea what I'm doing when I pick up a paintbrush, so these look like a child painted them. But thankfully, watercolors are pretty forgiving. Even though these are pretty rough.....they were still super fun to create and it just makes me want to practice and improve my technique. :)

Thank you, Angela, for sharing your beautiful art with all of us! 

Even though this photo was not taken with the cookies featured in this blog post, I wanted you to see the set-up I used to create my watercolored cookies. Angela's YouTube video explains how to make the bottles of color.

It is so fun to change up the colors and styles of cookies going from the winter months into spring. The bright cheery colors lift the spirit and remind everyone of all the new life that occurs during this season.

I wish you all a very Happy Easter and a blessed Resurrection Day!

Painted Background Silhouette Easter Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

After discovering the neon sign style for cookies, I wanted to transfer that simple, clean look into a pastel spring color setting. I tried by using a white background on the cookies, but it was not the look I was going for. However, when I painted the cookies with bright spring-y colors and used white glaze for the silhouette and detail lines, it matched what I was envisioning.

Just like with the neon sign style, once you get the background painted on, the decorating is super quick and easy.

Using a mixture of bright Americolor gels and vodka (or a clear extract like almond), paint the surface of each cookie completely.

Allow them to dry for a few hours.

Using white glaze, add the outlines and detail lines to each cookie.
There are no set rules here, so have fun with this!
P.S. I had to keep reminding myself that simple is better. :)
