Last December I posted about my childhood memories of baking sugar cookies with my mom. You can see the “star” doodle I created for this previous post, here.
We added lots of candy sprinkles to the cut-out sugar cookies we made. The more sugar…uh, I mean, color the better!! Right?!
I tried to create the candy sprinkles in this handmade stamp which looks like it was dipped into frosting! Lol! 🙂 Honestly, it was only acrylic paint!
I then cut simple shapes (using stencils) that look a little like cookie dough to me (gelli-printed papers):
And added my colored “candy sprinkles” stamp to them with acrylic paint with a little glitter on top:
I think this would be a fun project to do with children! And of course, you need REAL sugar cookies to enjoy while making these paper ones!
P.S. Eileen McKenna at My Creative Resolution has created a daily art prompt for the countdown to Christmas. I hope you join in the fun! I like that ALL art mediums are welcome… Today’s prompt is Cookies. Use hashtag #adventmcr when posting.
