Get Your Daily Sprinkles Here!

Greetings!  Today I'm playing with something perfectly timed since tomorrow is my birthday!  I love cupcakes, perhaps a little too much.  Playing with this stencil , designed by June Pfaff Daley, will have far less calories than the one I might consume tomorrow.  Here goes!

June Pfaff Daley's Cupcake Sprinkles (S011)

First, using a Gelli Arts plate and a brayer I rolled some acrylic paint over the surface.
As you can see below, I mixed the colors together a bit.

I purchased a hunk of this floor adhesive stuff at Northern Tool & Equipment.  
I think it is for the garage floor.
To me, it looks like a great stamp!  Since there are circular elements in the finer part of the stencil I thought it would be a visually interesting background for the cupcake.

Using several pieces of watercolor paper and a variety of liquid acrylic paint and spray acrylic paint
I applied the paint, pressed the gelli plate surface with the improvised stamp, and pressed the paper onto it.  I did this repeatedly and varied the paint colors slightly, as well as using the tool as a stamp, but I did stay on one side of the color wheel to avoid making "mud".

Here are the papers....

Now, I plan to stencil opaque white paint through the cupcake opening.

I apologize that the images here are flipped sideways.  
I don't like it but I don't know what to do about it.

I wanted this white opaque paint because I am either going to apply another paint color over the surface, or simply use the white to allow the "toppings" to show.
Using the small circular openings I add decoration to the cupcake icing.

I added a few more elements that I will alter a bit later.

sprinkles...

I'm adding marker to the openings on the base.

Now, some Sakura "Souffle" pen marks


Using a cheap set of office supply stencils that I carry around when I travel 
(and I am traveling as I finish this project) I write on the surface

some more dots are added with the Sakura pens.

On this paper I elected to leave the cupcake white and work into the background instead.

Here are my finished pieces.  I like the partial words visible in the background.






Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will bounce on over to the other blogs on this hop!

  31. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I'd sing, but I couldn'y carry a tune even if it was superglued to my forehead. I did the Summer of Color challenge, and we had Yellow & Candy Apple Red one week. They are very difficult to use in combination and keep each color separate. You did a fabulous job of doing that. KUDOS!!! You also have lots of great texture. Great job!!! I really hope you have a spectacular day tomorrow. Get ya a crown, and declare yourself QUEEN for the day!!! (((HUGS)))
