I’ll Take A Facial With My Tea: Daily Art Practice
Last weekend, I surprised my Little with a trip to the spa. One of our local businesses, had a kid’s day and one the special’s was a spa treatment. They make soap and body products using natural ingredients. I just loving going in there because it smells like essential oils. Her spa experience consisted of a foot soak, facial with cucumbers, shimmer cream on her arms and legs (her favorite part), all while enjoying a snack. She had so much fun and was on cloud nine the rest of the day. Being pampered certainly made her feel special. Can you believe she asked to go again in a few weeks for a back-to-school spa day? I told her it is not special if we go all the time. She is certainly a girly-girl and she loves jewelry, accessories, lip gloss and decor. She doesn’t play with toys, which makes holidays and birthdays easy. So, I am thinking a spa day may be a good birthday present.
First & Last for the Tea Cup Class
Here is the sketch I made before starting my tea cup class. I remember spending so much time on this and not knowing how to get it ” just right.”
Here is the ending sketch. The only difference that I can see is that my shadows and shapes are defined a bit better.
Since the end of class I have been practicing, not as often as I should of course but here are a few cups inspired by my visits to the T2 website.
I am joining the Tea Day Ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Loose Leaf Sencha from T2. I got it at such a great deal because it was on sale. This whole bag only cost me about $10. I like the taste and I wish I had purchased two bags. If they still have some left at a later date, I may purchase more. In the meantime, I will do my best to ration what I have.
Happy tea Day,
