Inspire Me Monday: Blow Up Your Digis

Hey everyone, welcome to another Inspire Me Monday! Jessie here with you all again today, hoping to pop some cropping and watercolour inspiration into your Monday!

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 140lb extra white hotpress watercolour paper. I then pulled out some of my Daniel Smith watercolor paints and had a blast painting up all these gorgeous florals!

Edit: We’ve gotten a lot of questions and comments about what method Jessie uses to resize her images. In a newsletter, I suggested enlarging the image in the print dialog box (that’s what I do) but Jessie has just created a REALLY HELPFUL tutorial video for showing how she enlarges, rotates, and crops images for cards using Microsoft Word. Take a look! ~marcella

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. I love this enlarged version of the digi!! So pretty. Your coloring is lovely.

  2. Oh my, Jess, you are so funny and so fun! I love your card and love your video! (I love them all and always get a giggle at what you say.) Beautifully done, and thanks so much for sharing your coloring talent even when you are one super busy gal! Hugs!! xoxo

  3. Jessie, this is just GORGEOUS! So bright and cheery. And I agree with Cheryl, it is so cute to listen to you — as well as very helpful! Thank you for sharing your pretty talents with all of us!! xo ~m

  4. I would watch you paint flowers all day, so if you work out making that happen, you'd have at least one viewer! This is beautiful :-)

  5. Is there a tutorial for altering the sizes of the PP digital images?

    1. We just added it to this blog post! Thanks for the request hope it helps!!
