Looks excellent! Great liner

Thank you, the liner was challenging for me. Actually the whole cupcake was more complex than it seems. Do you agree?

I do agree. And I did it along with Matt so had to take my “mistakes” in stride. I do tend to work to fast but enjoy having something to show for my 1.5 hour of work. Now the live lessons - I have to take my time!

Wow, you do amazing! I cannot keep up with Matt, too fast for me. Next live lesson with pastels will be a challenge for triple sure, but I’m triple sure you’ll do great!

Hi Sonia - nice job on the cupcake, and as I’ve also found if I’m not happy with something, it is usually just because it needs more work.

I’ve never been able to draw along with Matt at the same time. How can anyone watch what he is doing and look at your own paper at the same time. Then if you add the chat box - gosh. Thats too much multi-tasking for me. I have found for me I like to watch the entire lesson. Then as I watch it in segments the second time, I watch a little, pause, draw on my own, watch a little more, pause again … repeat … repeat. It always takes me LOTS longer, but I feel less stressed doing it that way. And I just figure this is not a race. It takes as long as it takes.

Well, I finally finished my cupcake. I did not have Pastelmat paper so used some sanded paper I have. I only used the Rembrandt pastels, and the background was grey so it took a little turn in the outcome, but I am okay with it. I guess it is a little more impressionistic, but not even sure of that - lol!

It is a one of a kind cupcake!!!


I think it looks great! Mine had so many issues - I like yours better! Now we can draw this one. image0.jpeg

Hi Teri -
It is so much fun to see everyone’s artwork. That cherry looks really shiny. Love the blue background too.

They are. I use the date lady sugar and her website has other recipes. I also use the date sugar in other things like marinara sauce, etc. Here is a pic of the cookies.
