Creative Confetti: Pop of Personality!


Happy Tuesday and welcome to a new Creative Confetti challenge! I'm Lisa Johansen and I am thrilled to be your guest host today! Let's get right to it, shall we?

The temperatures have dropped and most of my flowers have wilted and died with the freezes we've had here in southcentral Alaska. As I was putting away my pots and preparing my yard for winter, I started to think about the flowers I have throughout my gardens and why I chose them. Hardiness? Color? Height? There are so many reasons we lovers of nature choose the flowers and plants that we do for our yards to make them stand out. Then, I started thinking even deeper and wondered if I had to choose a flower that matched my personality which flower would I choose and that's how today's challenge was born folks!


HOW TO PLAY: This is a nice and simple challenge! Just pick a flower that you think best represents your personality and color away! Are you a demure Easter lily? Maybe you are a fun-loving daffodil or a wild and crazy dahlia? There are so many possibilities with this challenge!

I knew right away that I was going to go with pansies, I just adore them. They are the first flowers in my garden to bloom when the snow melts and they are the last ones to say goodbye when the cold moves into the valley. 

How do I compare them to my personality? Well, I see pansies as colorful and bold but yet also hardy and reliable and I can definitely say all of that about myself! I've got a pretty loud personality and will talk to anyone, one of my best friends says I've never met a stranger, but I also like routine and am not a fan of surprises. Living in Alaska one has to be pretty hardy to make it through the different things that get thrown at us out here and those who know me know I'm always reliable, whether it's at work, meeting up for a hike or just to be there for someone in need. 

Now for my card.....



I used the Power Poppy digital stamp set, Pansies for my card and just repeated the image across my panel, turning it and manipulating it in my Word program until I got the look that I wanted. I then used a sentiment from the Easy Breezy Coneflowers digital stamp set to finish off the card. I used Copic markers to color the image and colored my pansies in the colors that I love for my garden, the purple and yellow pansies, and then the orange and purple pansies. It's funny, I'm not a fan of the color purple but in my garden, you'll find it mixed in all over the place!
