Conie Fong Penelope Poppy - Design Team Inspiration

Summer's lease hath all too short a date.  - William Shakespeare

Hey there, welcome to Nannyland,

After a couple of blissful months as a Guest Designer for Conie Fong Art and Design, I'm thrilled to be an official Design Team member beginning this month. Yayyyy!  It will be absolutely delightful creating inspiration projects with Conie's stunning images. 

Poppies might be my favorite flowers because I think the centers look like sparkly jewelry.   I chose this darling Penelope Poppy image for my first DT project .  You can find her, along with  many other gorgeous images, in Conie's Etsy Shop.  I took the opportunity to say one last farewell to jeans and flip flops before fall begins, even though it's 106 degrees in the shade here in the desert.

I colored Penelope with Copics, fussy cut her and adhered her to a very "vintage" frame die that I found in my stash.  It turned out to be a hidden treasure because it fits my image perfectly and has separate matching flower dies for layering.   I die cut the flowers  in white card stock, colored them with  Copics that matched my image, added white gel pen accents and layered them with small die cut blooms. I embellished Penelope's stylish flip flops with small gems and added white gel pen polka dots to her outfit.

With each passing year, the seasons seem to get shorter and shorter.  The autumn leaves will soon take on the colors of a box of Trix cereal, the breezes will get a little cooler on my morning walks and Nannyland will soon fill up with fall and Halloween projects.  Um...I think the transition has already started.  It's getting spooky in here. 


  1. Wow! She is stunning! Great job! So happy to have you on the Conie Fong DT. Thanks for sharing your DT creation with us. It has been around 110 degrees here and I heard it was going to stay this way for a week or more. Too hot for me! Have a great day! Hugs, Gloria
