Lawnfawn - Cookies and milk stamps

This another one of my simple yet subtle season card. I have continued to use the embossing technique. I think it's such a good way to make a simple and quick card and at the same time, it gives off a very polished look.

Christmas Custom Project




I've had a request to do a custom christmas card this year for a friend and thought I might as well try out Adobe Illustrator and the learn the software as I go long. Adobe Illustrator can be very easily to use and at the same time it can be very tricky. 

I have had looked at a few amazing tutorial on YouTube for some ideas and tips for beginners, so I was it quite easy to start off. Ideally I wanted to use the paint tool but for some reason it doesn't allow me to use a paint tool at all, so opted on the blob tool instead. This tool is surprisingly worked very well! My first piece and already I feel like I do make so much more!

DIY - Halloween Cake Toppers

Boo!

I don't normally celebrate Halloween Day, however I think it's great fun to bring all the ghouls and friends together partying and feasting the night away!

I thought I might do a couple of some paper craft for Halloween day for all the parent's out there on the budget!

Video will be up very soon, so for now enjoy the below pictures.

Thanks!

Tsujiri UK

Who doesn't like matcha? 

I guess it's one of those food where you either love it or hate it, right? A few people have said it tasted like wet grass, taste funny, too powdery etc etc,  but for me it's completely heavenly lush! *Can't find any other words to describe this!*

I've recently discovered that Starbucks also introduced Matcha Latte onto their menu, another reason for me to start shifting from Pret a manger! Anyway, I've made another discovery that a Japanese cafe just recently came into town. The heart of London Soho - Tsujiri. 

Their desserts was killing it on instagram for the past few months, I thought I might give it a go before I started to feel like I am being left behind of not trying the 'IT' dessert. For £4.95 you get a pot ( well worth it) filled with....I assumed could be rice cakes at the bottom, smothered in chocolate and topped with matcha ice cream and a mochi. Not sure what the other brown stuff is, though. 

If you're not a matcha fan, there really is no point going here as every other items on their menu are matcha! And for you new matcha newbies out there, it's well worth a  try. My nephew who thought he hated green tea/ matcha items, said he wouldn't try it, so I asked him to try again and he absolutely love it. Definitely coming back here again. 

I thoroughly enjoyed  making food illustrations, so you may see some more post like this. I hope you can taste some matcha ice cream by looking at these images. :D
