Waking Up to Reality - Prima Product Picks

Hello! It's a new week starting with new challenges over on the Prima blog today, and we have this beautiful palette to play with this August.

And I enjoyed creating this poppy layout...

The colours this month are wonderfully fresh, which inspired me to pull my watercolour pencils out! Not that I need much encouragement ;)

I drew the outlines for the leaves and used the pencils to layer colour up, mixing with water along the way.

The background is a combination of Finnabair circular stamps and a Bloom stencil, again adding colour from the pencils.

Finished with a smattering of glitter and stencil details. Hope you're inspired to play along!
