When I think of contrast that old Three Dog Night song comes to mind... the ink is black the page is white...
This week I've been working on a photography challenge using contrast.  I didn't want to do a traditional kind of black and white photograph but when I tried to think outside the box I had quite a bit of brain block.
Baking to the rescue! Contrast chocolate cupcake, white frosting.  What do you think?
I made these little mini's this morning. Cute, huh. They taste pretty good too.
I'm taking them to a small group dinner tonight along with the left over chocolate chip pistachio cupcakes I made yesterday.  I think I have baking out of my system for a few days anyway.
This is my other latest thing, I do this whenever I'm waiting at the Dr. office or in line somewhere or waiting for something to come out of the oven.
It's called zentangling.  Just use a square piece of paper and black pen and some basic lines and for a doodler like me it adds up to hours of zen fun.  There are several great sites on the internet that give instructions on how to do it and the philosophy behind it.  I'm thinking about starting a before school group with some of our early bird students.  Anyway, that's it for contrast today.  Have a great evening and I'll talk to you again soon.
