gingerbread disasters

i liked the idea of this. i should have done jan's name. i shortened finnbadger to finn and then when i put the badger on , it was too straight, so i added another one and then some more scrolly-doodles and then it looked awful. but the finn part was NOT FUN to do, so i did not want to do it over, but did want to pass along the here is the idea ... write the name in chalk first and then patiently do a whole row of eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees

i can tell that i like the large scale frosting on the sticker that comes with the book of stamps, so i will play around with large scale frosting writing.

 my first attempt with the large scale tool was the pentel paint pen. disaster. but, i like to fix things by just layering a bunch more and i rather like this one. it looks like a snow storm. i would also like to do one that has a bunch of smoke coming out of the chimney. i wonder if cathy has ever been in a snow storm?

the top is a scan the bottom is a phone photo. interesting how different the colors are. they are both the discontinued cobalt from paper source.
