Day 6, a little late, a mosaic of poppies. Pinterest was, once again, a source of inspiration. I found this picture and followed the link back to Donna Downey’s awesome blog “Simply Me“. Lots of yummy stuff to go look at later.
I love these Oriental Poppies and have taken pictures of them at Filoli Gardens:
And also at the Italian Street Painting Festival in San Rafael:
I used pictures pulled from magazines and from my stash of saved images (also mostly from magazines). The poppies have petals made from blinds, dresses, art work and lips.
The flower centers are from a picture of lustrous dark hair and a black pen for the little details.
The green for the leaves and stems came mostly from ads that had leaves in them but also from some green jeans.
Most of the color for the background “tiles” was background in ads – sky, water, or just a pretty colored background, but I also used several paint chips, some scrap-booking paper and a great purse. Look carefully and you can see details like stitching (that’s the purse).
Somehow it is almost 8PM and I haven’t started the spread for today! Yikes.
Here is the Day 6 project from last year: Shrinky Dink Rings (Fail II)
Day 6 the year before was: Infused Oil
Thanks for stopping by.
