Personal Side

Another very productive week here in the CookieCrazie zone......
very crazie, indeed.

I finished up my Valentines cookies this week......
sent all the end products to my husband's work today.
Oh my, some of those cookies are HUGE.
But then, we're talkin' a bunch of engineers that can consume lots of sugar. ;)
The sad part.....is they don't get in to the whole "gorgeous cookie" realm......
in fact.....I've gotten messages from them with regard to how I can make a design MORE realistic.
haha.....I just love to hear techie men tell me how I need to change what I'm doing. : /

It's COLD!
I'm sitting here at my desk with three layers on, a small space heater going,
drinking hot chocolate, and I'm thinking about going and getting my favorite cozy blanket!
I'm thankful I get to sit here and NOT go out today.

CookieCon is less than two months away.
I can hardly believe it is almost here.
Are you going?
I'm looking forward to it.
I don't have to teach this year......so I can relax and enjoy being with other cookie friends.
No stress or pressure this time. :)

Now.....Italy in May......a whole 'nother story! haha

Next week I'm moving on to a totally different cookie theme.
I've surprised myself when I looked through all my idea pics to find the subject.
It's another one of those "out of the comfort zone" topics.
Here we go!

Instagram photos for this week:


Chocolate.....Milk......Whipped cream.....Delish!


Using my new block number cutters to make a fun winter scene...


Lace..... Truly happy with how these turned out.
I love Valentines Day decorating!!


Puffy Clouds.....Now I just need a Blue Sky. :) 


Experimenting with new ideas.....exciting, fun, scary, and daunting all at the same time.
I'm stepping out of "my box" more than once this week.
I can't improve if I don't, right?


Perfect on a frosty BRRRR morning.....


 Tangled up in love.... ♥♥
 

Makes me happy! ♥

Winter Silhouette Cookies (Tutorial)





I love the simplicity of silhouettes....especially on cookies!
All you have to do is get the outline over a plain or patterned background......
and you have a lovely design.

The first step is to look for silhouettes all around.....
whether tangle photos/clipart you have laying around or pictures found on the internet.

Once you've decided what shapes you want to put on the cookie.....
print them out to about the size wanted on the cookie surface.

Outline and flood the cookies.
Both a plain one-color background or a patterned background will look good.
You can make it as simple or complex as you wish.

Once the background has dried a bit,
you need to outline and flood the silhouette.
A Kopy Kake helps immensely.....but it is definitely not an essential.
I don't use mine often, but in this case, it came it super handy.
(For a brief overview of how a KK works, check out this post.)


If you don't own one......
just cut out the shape and trace around it directly onto the cookie using a food color marker
Outline and flood from there.


 The simplicity really makes for a beautiful cookie.
