We are in the middle of the school holidays here in New Zealand.  It has been a cold one with quite a few beautiful frosts and stunning days.  Being the holidays at the moment has meant less time in the studio.  But that doesn't mean I haven't had any creativity this last week.

Last week my youngest boy got baptised.  It was a beautiful evening for him surrounded by friends and family.  For the occasion I made him a special cake to celebrate his 8th birthday and his baptism.  He really loved it.  The tie on top of the towel has the letters CTR on it.  This stands for Choose the Right.  It is a reminder to each child to make great choices in their life. 

The letter on the cake were stamped in while the icing was still soft

I cut out the circles with a top of a bottle

I wonder if I could try to use any elements from this cake in my art work?

I could try......
  • Using pokadots
  • Stamping letter on to quilt tops
  • Using only a 2 colour palette
  • Try variety of sizes of one shape on a quilt to add interest
  • Use circles in embroidery or quilting
  • Use dots in a border

Look around you to see what inspiration you can see for ideas for your next piece of art work.  You'll be surprised at what you can use.
