Beaftiful Poppies

The Beautiful Poppies workshops are going really well with a lot of enthusiasm from everyone who is joining in. Using a combination of mixed media to achieve this look, we start with building up layers with texture medium, fabric decoupage to apply serviettes and rice papers to a painted background. Once I have achieved the image I use free machining to give texture and interest to the piece. I am amazed at the variation and watching the creativity come from each student. Using different serviettes and backgrounds give these pieces individuality.
This is a great workshop to try different mediums and techniques.
