A Working List of Things We Do With Food
We stir it, mix it, fry it, and flip it.
Whisk it. Beat it. Rest it. Rise it.
Did I say fry it? Bake it. Sauté it and steam it.
We stand over food with a camera. We sit in front of food with love in our eyes. We shovel cold leftovers in out mouths with little shame. We sneak it from bulk bins at the grocery store because we’re hangry and that’s just going to be that.
We adore it. We appreciate it. We thrive from it.
And now… well, we can scan our food into fancy computers and make big, bright, poppy paper out of it, because… the world is new and exciting always.
I’ve been playing around with the new HP Sprout computer (and also totally playing with my food) and can I just say…. WHOA! The computer can scan anything, even 3-D object, to create mega-unique design products. And… for someone like me, who can be a little design challenged, scanning and scooting (technical term) design elements with my fingers and a touch screen is pretty fantastic.
*This post is sponsored by HP Sprout. They made a really cool computer and I wanted to show you what I made with it.
If you’re wondering. I’ve been scanning everything. Just everything… from Brown Butter Pistachio Baked Donuts to bunches of fresh flowers.
Here’s what I made!
Poppy, bright, colorful, summer-inspired WRAPPING PAPER! Because we live in a world where we can make wrapping paper out of the things we eat.
Watermelon wedges and popsicles. I wanted to make something simple, bright, and graphic. Also… maybe we should talk about how many popsicles I have in my freezer right now. Bordering on obscene.
If you fancy the prints and papers I made, you can find them here. If you’d like to know more about HP Sprout and spark some of your own food-inspired creativity, check it here! It really is pretty cool.
I’ll surely be making more prints and papers as we move into the holiday season and I’m training TronCat to be wrapping paper ready so…. I’m sorry in advance.
