Tickle Your Tongue With Tiger Bark

I’ve have to stop doing food designs. First I craved a latte. Now I am craving all things peanut butter. It was hard to choose a favorite recipe for this weeks Spoonflower design challenge. Design wise, I thought it best to select something simple, with short instructions. This is one of my favorite treats to make for Christmas gift giving.

Melt white chocolate, mix in peanut butter, top with a drizzle of chocolate. Ba da Bing. And try hard not to eat it all, while you wrap it up.

Is there a recipe you make, that is always requested? What favorite would you like to see in a design? Hmm, would it be dessert, or a savory main dish? I wonder. 🤔 I’d love to hear from you. 🙂

This challenge was so much fun. As you can see, I recycled one of my paintings from this month. I used different patterns, to be sure the dates were legible. The full leaf is larger, to fill the space. I also added a digital border, outline, to the vase. To give it a crisp look. I left the planting raw, with rough edges and pencil marks.

Voting is now open, There are fewer entries this week. Lots of terrific designs, though. Thanks so much for taking the time! 🙏😄

This will be available as a wall hanging, and on a tea towel.

Spoonflower provides a template for the designers. I created a frame, to cover the areas that are out of bounds. It helped me to see only the area I had to work with. Gave me a “clean” canvas.

I had so much fun with this series. I painted first, with acrylics and/or watercolor. The first two have pots that were collaged by hand. I continued in Photoshop, adding collage with digital patterns. Some of which are just copies of paper patterns I have.

You might ask, “why not just collage the paper by hand?”. And that is a fair question. In photoshop I can change the color, stretch or shrink the pattern, change the direction. I can try everything. I can also change my mind in the final stages and rework the individual pieces.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do. We are in the final week of the gathering now, and I have started a new series. But I will be revisiting this style in months to come.
