Inspire Me Monday – Ruffled Up!

Hey everyone, Jessie here today with another Inspire Me Monday for you all! Today I am painting up the Wild Ruffled Orchids!
I had a blast with this image, playing with a new watercolour brush that I got for Mother’s Day, this was the first real image that I got to paint with it. But I love this brush!

As per usual, I have a process video to share with you all!
Happy colouring

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!

Hey everyone! I am finally back on my floral game! I have truly missed painting up flowers. So for today’s card I cropped and printed off Power Poppy’s Magnolia Sunshine Digital image on some Fabriano Artistico 140lbs hotpress watercolor paper.

I bought these Jane Davenport watercolours, because the tins were so cute and got around to finally trying the paint! You don’t need to have the worlds priciest paint to create beautiful bright vivid floral cards! Just look at how those colours work together, I was, overall, impressed with these paints.

I didn’t think I was going to have time to get a video of this one together for you all, but I stayed up a little late and got it done, I love filming watercolour and getting to see it all come together again as I edit the video! I hope you enjoy.
