"P" is for Poppy

2 posts in one day wow!
This is my second altered page for the Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn where the letter is "P" I love Poppies so decided to alter a second page to share at this challenge, only trouble is everything didn't go to plan..............think that is an understatement to say the least, I started by painting the poppies in acrylic paint "fusion" style which went wrong from the start need more practise......anyway instead of just abandoning it I then decided to add some red colour ink to the top of the page and spritz and let the colour run over the page I blotted with paper towel, next I used stencils and black acrylic paint for the bars, words and numbers, then I over stamped the poppies and embossed in black which I also did for the word Poppies, also added rings with a bottle lid and white paint.

Without realising it I seem to have made a remembrance page so I thought I would share anyway as things don't always need to go to plan............do they?
Thanks for looking and for the lovely comments on my Pear page here

  1. Your poppies have turned out well, the colours in the background give the page depth! Yes, sometimes things go differently to how we expect,we all have experience with that, but you have done really well here. Hugs,

  2. Awe what gorgeous poppies Maggie, your spread is fabulous. One of my fave flowers that always make me smile. Thank-you for your kind visit too.

  3. Like your poppy pages. I was about to do poppies myself for the challenge but have thought of something else to do instead. Talk about last minute rush jobs! Hugs Mrs A.
