2  Level Up Your Cooking Skills! in Craftalongs by Acadian Driftwood on: December 01, 2017 08:15:42 PM

Experiment with new techniques and hone your kitchen skills! Want to try making fresh cheese, canning jams, blending custom spice mixes, baking bread, butchering meat, or even just using an unfamiliar ingredient?

This craftalong is a place to share your successes and failures learning experiences, ask advice, post resources, and chat about the new things we're all trying. The focus isn't as much on specific recipes, but on the skills that can be used in many different ways.

I recently started looking at things in my pantry and fridge and thinking "could I make that?" Things like canned beans - no reason I can't try dry beans, they are cheaper and I would have more control over the taste. I started making my own yogurt, and it's really cool! I want to try so many other things, like cheese, bread, and different kinds of fermentation. Please join me and post your own learning adventures!

I received a cute mitten from craftylittlemonkey, and a fun jingle wreath from GatorWrangler!



My cats are seriously obsessed with the wreath, I will have to hang it on the upper part of my tree. Cheesy

Thank you both for a great swap!

6  Peach - cat portrait in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Acadian Driftwood on: November 19, 2017 12:55:58 PM


Yesterday I took a class on pet portrait painting. This isn't really my wheelhouse, but I had so much fun! With great advice from the teacher, I was able to paint Peach, the farm cat. We began by tracing some basic lines on the canvas using a projector, and blocking the general colors.



Here you can see my reference photo and what my pallet looked like at the end. I did a heck of a lot of blending to get the highlights on her fur.



Finished piece! Peach lives at the farm from April to November, and then goes home with another employee for the winter. This way I'll have a bit of her with me when I can't see her every week.



Our whole class with their paintings - can you spot blupaisan? Cheesy

I received from craftylittlemonkey - she sent two, because we're doing an unofficial sideswap for one of my yarn stars. Smiley



They both look wonderful, thank you!

I also received from crafty-becky, a cute retro felt bulb.



I like the detail stitching on this, thank you!
