Beaded Poppies

Hi folks,
Blimey two posts in one day - must be sickening for something! Lol
Anyways, I wanted to pop in and show you my entry for the current Clarity challenge which is Flower Power.
I have been attending the Clarity Classes run by the lovely Maria Simms and I have to say she inspires me with the techniques she teaches us.
So, here is one such technique we covered recently.
I have used the Poppy Stencil from Clarity and sponged my inks through it. 
Then I used my Cosmic Shimmer Clear Texture paste and applied that through the stencil.
Then I added Micro beads to the paste whilst still wet.
They give such a lovely glittery finish and I am really pleased with this as it is only the second time I have used them.
Then I decided that it looked a bit sparse so using the remountable Journalling set of stamps from Clarity and added some stamping around the edge on top of the dusting of colour I gave the edges with my stencilling brush.
So there you go, my beaded poppies.  Can't wait for my next class Maria Simms.
