So Grateful



Oooo, today’s set we’re introducing at Power Poppy is going to knock your socks off!  It’s SO Marcy....a little vignette, some gorgeous flowers....all rolled together with some wonderful sentiments  to create a fantastic set.  It’s called So Grateful.  



I decided to work with this amazing chair and pumpkin scene first.  Tomorrow I’ll show you something else with this set, but I just had to work with that chair right away, I think it’s so great!  I wanted the chair to look a bit aged, like the paint was fading away.  I love the pumpkin filled with flowers and the pretty potato vine trailing down the chair.  

I picked some autumny tones for the paper that would pick up the colors of the scene and then stitched it all together.  



Here’s a closer look at the colouring, honestly I used so many different markers that I didn’t take a picture of them!  



Here’s the Bloom Brigade in action with this beautiful set!  And we’ll see you back here tomorrow for our Blog Hop!

LOVE your Copic color choices and that chair....that chair is simply stunning. All of your blooms are amazing too, and you couldn't have picked prettier papers to pair this with, but that chair really does it for me! This one goes up there in the Christine all time bests in my opinion....just sayin'.....major high fives to you, girlfriend!
