Winter Poppy

Hi everyone!

It's me again!
My inspiration for you this time is those purple-violet-bluish vibrant and extraordinary Foamiran Poppy Flowers. I know, I know, they're quite unusual, but why not? In the flower world there are a vast amount of unbelievable colour combinations :-).
Poppies were made out of Genuine white and purple Foamiran, whereas the leaves were made out of Silk Suite.

There were many stamens needed in the centrepiece so I've used two-tone stamens and colored the white part in light blue to get the necessary colour combination.

For the leaves I went with, already my favorite, Silk Suite CREAM, printing it a Chrysanthemum Leaf Mould. The last one I find vert appropriate for making leaves suitable for my arrangement.

Coloring was very important part for this project! As you can see I used a few of them to gain the necessary combination such as prussian blue, violet, lilac, purple and malachite green oil pastels. It was such a fun to play with those once.

That's my feeling about the upcoming winter, bright and vibrant - saturated with particles from the past summer :-)!

Thank you for visiting!

  1. Hi Elena, you’ve created once again these gorgeous poppies. I absolutely love your work I’m your no.1 fan ;-) look forward to seeing more creations from you. Hugs, ivy x

    1. My dear Ivy, thank you so much for your lovely comments! I'm so blessed to have online friend like you! Xxx

  2. Жестоки макове, Ели! Не мога да им се нагледам. Толкова ярки и живи цветове!
    Основата в центъра готова ли е или ти си я прави?

    1. Вътрешната част, Маги, може да бъде направена или от стиропорено топче около 2см (ако използваш лепило за фоум) или от домакинско фолио. Покриваш топчето с фоум предварително оформен с пръсти, за да се получи вдлъбнатина. След залепянето оцветяваш с желания цвят. После залепяш тичинките около центалната част предварително направени на снопчета. Това е! Дано съм била полезна!

    2. Благодаря за подробното обяснение, Ели!

  3. Absolutely STUNNING flowers!!!!!
