    Marie's Poppies

    I have made a wonderful frien on this board named Marie. She lives clear across the country from me but we exchange news and pictures a lot. She has a beautiful yard and has been sending me photos of her gorgeous Iceland Poppies as they begin to bloom. This is my depiction of them.

    It's like you could just pluck those and put them in a vase. Beautiful.

    I just went to your blog and all I got was 4 pictures of what you have done. I can't seem to get anywhere else. Please help me out with this.

    Iceland Poppies are one of my favorite. You captured their beauty so well.



    PS: Cuppi, went to your blog for info on your process but nothing was available. Help?

    Your work is exquisite!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Just read your instructions on how you make your flowers. Thanks. Seems doable. The hot pink poppy in my avatar is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I think I will try your process. Bless you for sharing.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
