Humpty Dumpty Returns!

....at least the last 3 pages of his book are!
I acquired his tired and torn pages from my daughter's school, if you remember...

You can refresh your memory, if need be, at this post here to see how I prepared the pages and what not...

I decided to finish out the book with little paintings done with the same feel.
Since the last one was for coffee lovers, I decided to dedicate one to all the tea drinkers out there :)


This one is obviously called "Cuppa Love".


 It features real string for the tea tag that is adhered only to the rim of the cup so it dangles free :)


I love that some of the original illustration shows through on the other side.


The last 2 pages reflect a bit of a cupcake craze I went on recently.  Here's that post in case you don't believe me...
They just seemed like such a simple, happy thing to depict....and we all need a little happy sometimes, right?
A cupcake can do no wrong.......I know, I know, tell that to my thighs....
At least a painting of one is innocent enough ;)



Excuse my fingers in the picture!  It was a really windy day today...haha!


As you can see, manicures are just not in my budget....lol!
But, that's okay....because.....


I used Glossy Accents across the entire top of this one....and liberally applied glitter!


It's so neat how that glossy stuff looks when it dries....the glitter just seems to "float" above the painting :)


I wish there were more than just 4 of these pages.  The interesting shape was so fun to work with....
Cuppa is finding a home across the pond, but the Cupcakes are available in ye olde Shoppe :)

Thanks for taking the time to stop in today.....and I accept no blame for any bakery treats consumed after reading this post :D

Sweet thoughts and mugs full of smiles,
Cam

I am in love with these!!! :-) I love everything about them. The themes : coffee and cupcakes, the colour combination and of course the craftsmanship. :-) It would be so cute to hang it on the kitchen wall. :-)

I am including it in my post for today : Wednesday Colour Splash : Art Edition. I am crediting you, of course.

Thanks for sharing it. :-)

My mouth is watering and I think what I can eat sweet now (have got a big salat for dinner and I am full) but your sweet cupcakes, especially the last looks so real yummy...but your teacuppa looks so gorgeous too, so I decide to drink a hot cup pa ti :-)

Faerie Moon Creations said...

These are just sooo super cute! Congrats on selling the tea art. I like this fun art!!!!

WrightStuff said...

Would it be OK if I licked your painting? Seriously... it looks that delicious!

Jennifer said...

These are so much fun! I love how you use all sorts of different backdrops for your creations. It's really inspiring, since I rarely step beyond canvas and water color paper. These are so completely fantastic! No Cameron, cupcakes can do no wrong. You're completely right. Cupcake weight is better than like... pizza or burger weight. It's sweeter. HAHA! At least that's the excuse I will give myself. You make such sweet things. I am still SO in love with the pieces I got from you. They make me happy to look at them. Hope all is wonderful,
Jenn

Erin K said...

Oh my...these are...delicious looking. Yummm! Love the look of the glittered one too. ^_^ I think I'm going to have to bug my mum to make some cupcakes now. *laughs*
But you know, if you take a cupcake and no one sees you, then it has no calories.^_~ Always love looking at your wonderful work, Cameron!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Cupcakes are so much fun and yours are adorable! I'll have to pass though and just have a cuppa! Fun art, my friend! You inspire me! ♥

Heather Henry said...

Oh my gosh, these are so stinkin' sweet and I have to say a cupcake and coffee is sounding pretty darn marvelous right about now. BAH!! Not what my thighs need. haha! I do love these and the random items that you added to make it a bit more 3 dimensional. Oh so sweet. My daughter absolutely loves cupcakes. She and her hub wrote a song about them, called The Cupcake Song. hehe!! Love your art, you're super talented. :)

Incipient Wings said...
