Poppies Art Journal Page


My thoughts and prayers are with everyone on the East Coast in the path of Hurricane Sandy. It's scary to even think about a storm this size and severity let alone having to live through it. May it downgrade before landfall.  

Here is an art journal page of mine. I've long admired Donna Downey's gorgeous work with poppies and decided it was high time to sit down and take a crack at the theme myself. Since drawing scares the heck out of me, I did these on gessoed index cards with a pen and acrylic paint. As you know, I LOVE index cards. No risk! You can see more of my index card posts HERE

I made five poppies and chose my four favorites to include in my art journal.

Nicole,
Thank you for thinking of us. It sure is scary and the worst is yet to come.
I received my package in the mail this weekend. It is gorgeous. I almost wasn't going to open it because I knew if I saw it I would want to keep it. However, it is perfect for my daughter. I can't wait to give it to her.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your talent.
Be blessed,
Teri
