Happy Monday everyone! Today I have a new Power Poppy post to share with you all. I usually use the Inspire Me Monday posts to stretch my creativity and push myself to try new styles. This time I went with a loosen up theme.
I tend to paint with my watercolours in a very controlled way to accomplish a floral look full of very controlled layers, I find it very hard to just throw colours around. So that is exactly what I did this month, I used 2 quill brushes for the entire piece, and reached for a stamp I have coloured multiple times before to have a little bit of comfort, so here is this version of Sunflower Power.
I started by throwing some yellow, green and blue into the background and over the image, then I went in to start working out the stems and leaves with more layers of greens, adding pinks and purples to the petals. Then finishing off the center with a granulating brown (Hematite Violet Genuine). I am very happy with how this one came out, I want to try this one again and see how far I can push it till the piece feels over worked.
Hey all, it has been a long time since I have been able to do a Monday post over at Power Poppy. But, I am back!
So today I am using the Bubbles and Fizz digital image and my gouache for something new. In this time I am having fun using all the things that are in my stash and forgotten goodies I have collected over the years.
In true Inspire Me Monday style I have a process video of my card for you all, this one isn’t my most favorite thing I have ever made. But I had fun with it!
Hey everyone! Today I probably have one of the most CAS Cards I have ever made to share with you! And I think it is adorable!
Just a little ink blending, embossing on vellum, and then a few enamel dots and I called her complete! I also have a complete process video of this 10 minute card!

Hey all! I am here today with a fun new post featuring Power Poppy and some watercolor paints that I never reach for. It is fun to use the colours that you never reach for, it also stretches your ability and allows you to learn more.
I loved painting this sweet little Poppy up in these colours. I have a little process video to share with you all if you would like to paint along with me!
Hey everyone! Long time no see! I am back with you all today, and to ease back into floral videos for you all, I decided to keep things pretty simple with a little emboss resist technique using Poppy XL.
I of course have a video of this soft watercoloured card for you all as well!
I had a ton of fun playing with this stamp set and the handmade watercolours. The soft splashy look of this card really makes me happy I love watching colours move around!
Hey all! It is time for a new release over at Power Poppy! Today we have Boutiful Bouquet!
I took on my standard approach to all of Marcella’s wonderful florals! I printed this out on 140lbs hotpress watercolour paper and went at it with my paints. Focusing all the bright colours on the background. I was really feeling fall for this card. I kept the florats themselves fairly soft and delicate.
Make sure you pop over to the Power Poppy blog and see what everyone else has made!
