Hello Power Poppy Friends!
We’re so excited to welcome you here today and to invite you to our NEW Monthly Challenge! I’ll be your host (Christine), but each month I’ll be joined by some of our Power Poppy Bloomies bringing you inspiration with the challenge.
It’s called The Blossom Challenge! As I’ve been thinking about the challenge, my heart keeps coming back to this theme of “Blossom”. Yes, of course the flower allusion, that’s the beauty of Power Poppy, but also to Blossom in the sense of growing and thriving as creators, becoming more abudant in our abilities .......and sometimes that means we need a spark of inspiration, a push to try something new, a place that celebrates what we’ve done, and how we’ve grown. I want this to be a place to feel proud of our creative gift, in a Power Poppy Community that cheers one other on! So that’s what you’re going to find here each month at Power Poppy, and we hope you all join in!
This month our theme is “April Showers Bring May Flowers”. We want you to pull out all of those lovely Spring blooms that Marcy illustrates so beautifully and create anything with them. More on the theme, and prizes later in the post, but first I’ll start with the card I created.
Heart Abloom is one of my favourite illustrations from Power Poppy! I love the composition of the images, the combination of daffodils, narcissus, hellebore, tiny lilies and the fun blueberries and snail! Its sister set in polymer is called Always Here (still available!). I really enjoy picking unique palettes for my colouring and when I found a fun peachy-yellow hellebore that helped me decide on these fun colours together. That’s one of my #1 tips for colouring, do some research on your flowers first. Find some inspiration and build a cohesive colour palette from there.
So....here are the details about the Challenge!
