What have you been making?

Playing along with Meet Me at Mikes - What have you been making? Have been ploughing away at trying to make the bride and groom toppers for our wedding cake and it is doing my freaken head in. I can't seem to get the veil working right - she looks more like a nun bride at the moment.

Also trying to make a cat for the softie for Mirabel Charity for Meet Me at Mikes. It's better then the first attempt but still has a ways to go - it's my interpretation of a cat! Was initially trying to do green cat eyes but opted for the much more super friendly brown eyes.

Ode to Hundertwasser

(image source)

Hundertwasser is one of my favourite artists of all time - i just love his work and i wanted to share him with you. I finally hung up a painting one of my best friends (Andrew Battye - awesome painter with Uber Gallery Melbourne) painted for me inspired by him which you can see below. You should check out both of their websites (although their work is not similar at all!)

Cake Toppers

A little update on the Groom I am making for the top of our wedding cake for next year, also a sneak peak at the bride and some of the fabrics I want to use. I have temporarily used Pollo's eyes till I make some better ones for the groom as the last pair were way too big. If all else fails with these birds I found a pair of cute robots I could use!
