watercolor social icons +snapchat



I had quit making icons. Other people make better icons, I've been super busy and just hadn't given it any thought.Then I randomly got an email from Lisa asking for a linked in icon. I'm over here saying Pfft! Who uses linked in and what does it do anyway? So instead of working on wedding photos I thought Ya know, I might want a snapchat icon for when I figure out how to use snapchat.  ...Before I knew it, my to-do list had no check marks on it and the morning was gone! But I had the best pretty water color icons I've made yet!
I used free water color textures made by Chris Spoon, and hand painted by his sister.

Eggplant Curry with garbanzos

EGGPLANT CURRY (17 of 17)

 

First attempt at making Eggplant Curry! I  have since tweaked the recipe a little and now toss half of the eggplant into the food processor along with the onions and jalapeño and process until smooth. And add coconut milk. You might want to try some modifications to this recipe too.
