Power Poppy Dancing With Daffodils - Kit and Clowder January 2020 Monthly Class

Nothing in nature blooms all year.  Be patient with yourself. 

Hey there from Nannyland,

It's been a while since I've had a chance to sit at my desk and color, and it felt exhilarating to take  a breather and create some art.  Few things are more enjoyable to me than getting lost in a sea of bright Copic colors and a stunning new image. 

I seldom color flowers as my focal image but I needed a  card for a dear friend who has recently lost her grown son and I knew this lovely Power Poppy digi would make a beautiful sympathy card.  This image was the subject of the January 2020 Kit and Clowder markers class and I enjoyed following along with Alyce Keegan and watching her create her depth and texture magic. After I finished my coloring,  I carefully die cut the image with a Tattered Lace frame die and adhered it with mounting tape to a black glitter card stock frame in the next size. I chose a lavender panel to compliment my yellow daffodils.  I added a couple of  handmade Heartfelt Creation flowers to the garden for a little pop of texture.

I'm excited to expand my artistic repertoire and include more elements of nature in my coloring.  Learning and practicing new techniques is extremely satisfying and just plain fun. 

Thanks for visiting Nannyland.
I'll just be here blissfully creating until your next visit.
