Size:  1.10 MBFinished my Blue Poppy Collage this afternoon, I was going to try thread painting on it, but I chickened out. Maybe next time. Also shown is a picture of my friends blue poppies that was my inspiration for this

    You did a lovely job. I held back on thread painting for quite awhile, but really found it fun. You might like to just cut a few leaves freehand and try some on that to see how you like it.

    Nice! I never knew poppies grew in blue. I've only seen red and orange. Cool!

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    A collage is on my list of things to try...your blue poppy turned out lovely. Will there be more collage projects in your future?
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Collage is very rewarding, isn't it? You have created a beautiful picture of blue poppies.
