The poppy is one of my favourite flower in the garden. The flowers look so delicate and, yet, have such an intense vibrant colour and appearance. But the show does not stop, comes Autumn The poppy seed heads show the most amazing shape. I just love the structure and the rattling sound of the seeds in the seed head
This is one of the seed heads I collected this year, a rather small one but perfect for this little project. I coloured it with Dylusions spray ink and gave it a bit of a glimmer with Perfect Pearls. It is layered on some leftover bits of paper I had at hand and have been waiting to be used for a long time .... structured
paper, inked background, old book page and wax crayons on baking paper stamped. As embellishment I used some ribbon, a littlebead and a wee bit of stamping (Waltzing Mouse). Have a lovely weekend - now off in the garden to enjoy the wonderful sunshine, Petra.
