A Trip to Ikea

Simplystella Sketchbook
Un bel giorno, Barbie e Ken andarono all'Ikea e comprarono un nuovo scaffale per la loro casetta..
One fine day, Barbie and Ken went to Ikea to buy a new shelf for their (doll)house..

Simplystella Sketchbook
Per l'occasione, Barbie rinunciò ai tacchi alti e indossò jeans e scarpe da ginnastica!
For once, Barbie traded her trademark stiletto heels for jeans and sneakers!

Come tutti gli uomini, anche Ken trovò le istruzioni di montaggio troppo complicate, quindi toccò a Barbie assemblare lo scaffale.
Just like every other man, Ken found Ikea instructions a little too complicated, so Barbie had to assemble the shelf all by herself.

Tuttavia, Ken fu tanto gentile da passarle il cacciavite, ad un certo punto.
Ken handed her the screwdriver once, however.

Simplystella Sketchbook
Barbie e Ken furono così soddisfatti del loro acquisto che decisero di posare per uno scatto commemorativo. FINE.
Barbie and Ken were so happy with their purchase, they wanted to snap a picture of it. THE END.

(A Very Long) Honest Review: Mod Podge Collage Clay

Simplystella Sketchbook

Ve l'avevo promessa ed eccola qui: la review della Collage Clay di Mod Podge! kawaii
I promised it - and here it comes: the review for Mod Podge's Collage Clay! kawaii

Simplystella Sketchbook
Si tratta di una pasta air dry (asciuga quindi all'aria e non necessita di cottura in forno) ad effetto "panna montata". La pasta, simile ad una spuma, ricorda la panna montata anche nella consistenza, estremamente leggera e cremosa.
This is, basically, an air dry clay (therefore you don't have to bake it in an oven) with a foamy, light and creamy consistency - it looks and feels exactly like whipped cream.

Simplystella Sketchbook
La Collage Clay è confezionata all'interno di una vera e propria saccapoche, come quelle che si usano in cucina. All'interno della confezione ci sono anche tre punte intercambiabili, che si avvitano alla saccapoche per ottenere decorazioni di forme diverse.
Collage Clay comes into an actual pastry bag, just like the ones you would use to decorate a real cake. Inside the package, you'll also find three different screw-on nozzles.

Sixteen Candles (1:6 set)

Simplystella Sketchbook

Diciamocelo: se mi avessero fatto una torta del genere quando *io* ho compiuto 16 anni, mi sarei vergognata tantissimo (ero in piena fase punk rock asd)...
Truth be told, if *I* got a cake like this on my 16th birthday, I would have really, really hated it (I was in full punk rock mode. No pink cute stuff back then, thank you very much) asd
