Colour Mixing.....

Fun day today making this project....
I started my project by...........
Sprinkling a few shades of brusho's over the poppy seed stencil and
activating them by scraping clear embossing paste over the stencil.
The background has been done using sprays and brusho's.
I have also stamped text and a gold frame around the edges using media stamps and gold ink.
The circles are stencils, white gesso and gold paint.
To achieve the the orange and green features I mixed pastes in a few shades, spread
 over white gesso and a stencil.
I finished off with stamping the sentiment, popping it up onto foam and a few gold splats.
I loved the colours, the gold and how the red/orange poppy seeds worked out.
I had fun and got messy too.

Wow, this gorgeous piece packs a colourful punch! Such a perfect blend of stamps and stencils and I love the intense red colour of the Poppy pods. The gold around the edge gives the piece of art the perfect finish. I love it Mac :) X

What a wonderful mix of techniques Mac! I found your explanation of how you achieved it all fascinating my friend! That tallest poppy seed reminds me of the Olympic torch, with the 'flames' coming out of the top . . . in fact, they all do to some extent. This is one of those fascinating projects that every time you look at it, you see yet another detail you missed! That gold around the edge is fantastic and the stencilling in those two corners wonderful! In fact, my friend, it is all just amazing! Have a wonderful upcoming week! Hazel xx

The ones that caught my eyes are those two stenciled corners, such striking beauty! Pretty colors for the background that I should give a try and yes, the poppies are standing tall telling me you can do it too; thanks for the inspirations my friends. Love seeing your project at STAMPlorations August Mixed Media Challenge and join us again.
