Artwords~Cupcake (and IMT~Fun&Games)
The prompt this week at Artwords is "cupcake". I must say there's nothing depressing about a cupcake! Another ATC from me....
eta: Upon further reflection I decided that this also fit the bill for this week's Inspire Me Thursday prompt of fun and games. I think it fits because it is a pun of sorts... I love taking things literally and thinking outside of the box and I think this works for that. When I first saw the word cupcake all I could think was that there was only one interpretation for that word really...and so I set up trying to think of another, of course! So this is silly, and it's meant to be, and it makes me laugh, and it's fun...and it's all a bit of a game to me. I think "fun and games" can be interpreted quite loosely, actually, and can forsee adding more to this prompt as the rest of the week unfolds. That is if I get any time to have fun with art. I had to force myself today to sit down and draw this. It only took about half an hour, but sometimes carving out that thirty minutes when your house is a disaster area and your three year old is yelling "MOOOOOM!" and your dog is at your heels....well, you get the idea. But I'm glad I did because it was a moment of relaxation. And that is so key to making the hectic parts of life FUN. Know what I mean?
