Hello, all! It's going to be a colorful post today. First off, since it's Tuesday (well in most of the world it is; we still have a few more hours of Monday here in Minnesota), I'm joining Elizabeth and Bleubeard's virtual tea party. Today I'm not drinking tea; instead I have a tapioca dessert/beverage. It's made with coconut milk, passionfruit juice, pineapple juice, tapioca pearls, mango chunks, and a maraschino cherry.
To consume this treat, first you drink the liquid at the top, then you spoon up the fruit and tapioca from the bottom. This dessert is my own concoction, loosely based on the tricolor dessert/beverage that is sold at Twin Cities Hmong markets. (To see an example of real Hmong tricolor, I recommend this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRhMYhZQBtA)
Moving on to scrappy topics...
|Supplies: assorted scraps & stickers--too many to list individual manufacturers :) ; flair badges from October Afternoon; upcycled netting from fruit packaging; upcycled postage stamp; faux brads from Craftwork; pink flower from Petaloo; black flower from We Call Her Happydaks; stamps from My Mind's Eye; ink from Hero Arts; pen from Zig; household paperclips.|
The 8.5 x 11" layout above is my take on the "xylophone" challenge at Child's Play Challenges. Here is the image prompt:

I was inspired by the rainbow colors of the toy. To replicate that rainbow on my page, I collaged a background of scraps and other tidbits. (This was a great way to use up stash!) I also used a quote sticker ("The lovers, the dreamers, and me") from Bo Bunny with lyrics from the song "The Rainbow Connection."
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. Hope that your day will be filled with color! :)
