I cannot post the original picture, but you can find it here : http://hikingphoto.com/2012/09/26/infrared-photography/ . Patrick Latter is the Photographer who captured this wonderful image and using Infrared. I fell in love with this picture so I decided to make it into a cookie. I asked him to make sure it was ok, and he gave me the ok plus smiley face, so I gave it a go :).
My set up:
Almost finished :
I added black royal icing and used a star tip to make the border. I was playing around with different paper backgrounds:
And this is my end result:
I even added my signature lol :
Inspiration is everywhere, I just happened to find it in a photograph. I love decorating, but no so often do I get to do cookies like this. Not so often do I have time to make cookies like this. I am happy with it, it makes me smile :). When I saw the original photograph, I saw myself in it, towards the end. I could picture myself there, and breathe in all that wonderful air. I love it.
You can check out Patrick’s work at : www.hikingphoto.com …he captures very wonderful moments.
I will now go and finish up doing my Dora and farm animal favor tags, but I will leave you with this quote which I think about almost everyday:
“One day you will wake up and there wont be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.” ~Paulo Coelho …My sister lives and breathes Paulo Coelho, and this is one of my favorite quotes.
Love to all!
