Rosé all Day in Progress


Have we got a treat for you today!  Marcella has given us a brand new digital image that is stunning! It’s called Rosé All Day, and you’re going to be wowed!  It’s an amazing combination of flowers that are naturally reds, pinks, and whites (and any derivatives of these shades... pinky-purples, corals, peaches).  The bouquet features Roses, Redbud branches (Cercis canadensis), Cyclamen hederifolium, a Fern frond (for contrast) along with "ivy-leaved Cyclamen" leaves - they are quite dramatic. Marcy has worked in a few paint brushes and a colored pencil, along with a ladybug and bumblebees. Its such a beauty!

We’re also helping kick off Kathy Racoosin’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge today!


Though I don’t have a completed design, I started working on a larger piece that I’ll end up putting on an easel or framing.  I’ve printed it up large, about 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 and I’ve used the version of the image that works for “no-line” colouring.  I wanted to give the image that rosey-pink theme for all my flowers.  I’ll finish it up later this week and show it off to you once it’s done.  

I’ve done some basic laying down of colour, and once that’s done, I think I’ll possibly give it some detail with pencils to finish it off.  

Here are some of the Power Poppy girls giving you some sneak peeks off this amazing design today.
