Calculus and a Cupcake

Happy Friday! I still can't believe I finally was able to launch my kickstarter project and I am so thankful for all the wonderful support all of you have given me this week.  I really needed it! The sun is shining and we had about an inch of snow yesterday and it was just enough for snow angels!
I snapped these photos outside of my house but I think they look a little alien like up close.  Don't you think?
Here is a little mixed media study for my etsy shop.  A cupcake painted on paper collaged over a sheet from an old teach yourself calculus book .  :)  Who doesn't love cupcakes? I do.. Have a great weekend! 
PS- Only 41 days left in my kickstarter project and help me spread the word.  Next week I am going have some tips and tricks for making a video! I was really nervous about making the video for my project and thank goodness I had help from people who know what they are doing and I learned a ton!

I like that the page is from a Calculus book. My boyfriend and I first met in calculus in high school.
