Getting your mojo back!

PP_Blog_InspireMeMonday_Badge_JessieBanks.png

Hey all, you know how sometimes life gets crazy busy, and just have no time and the mojo takes a holiday… Well that is what I have been dealing with, it is not very often I don’t make something for a couple of weeks, but that is what I have been dealing with lately.

One of my favorite things to do is paint up some florals for a card, and being on the Power Poppy team allows me to do that, which is great when I need to force myself back into creating.

So I printed off the Everything’s Rosy digital image and turned on the camera and took an hour or so to myself and just painted it.

By the end I found myself again, it was fun and I loved getting back into the swing of things, sometimes you just need to push yourself to make something.. anything!

I enlarged and cropped the Heart Abloom Digital Image to fit the front of an A2 size card, then printed it out on Fabriano Artistico 140lbs extra white hotpress watercolour paper. I then pulled out some of my Daniel Smith paints and had a blast painting up all these gorgeous florals!

A Lil’ Magic

Hey everyone! Jessie here today, sharing a fun little watercoloured card using A Lil’ Magic stamp set!

I stamped all my images and sentiment out with Versafine Onyx black ink then painted it up with my Daniel Smith watercolours. I love this splashy little scene, a super quick and soft card! It is always fun with watercolours how you can build up your shadows and intensity just by layering the same colour over itself.

Lucky Tulip

Hey all! I recently ordered some stamps from a company for the first time, so today I have a card to share featuring Lucky Tulip from The Ton.

It has been a long time since I have watercoloured come flowers. It was so fun and relaxing to sit down and play with them. I love the way this card came out.

I used a bunch of different paint colours, Moon Glow, Cobalt Blue, Sap Green, Serpentine Genuin, Green Apatite Genuine, Quinacridone Gold, Rose of Ultramarine, Quinacridone Coral, and Quinacridone Violet.
