The Poppy Fairy

Hi Everyone,

Mike here with my very first official International Design Team blog post and project. I've been crafting for over 10 years and started to play more with mixed media and art journaling over the last three. I started my YouTube channel in 2015. I've been a fan of IndigoBlu for most of my crafting life!

For my first official project I decided to create a mixed media Poppy Fairy bust using one of the paper mache busts from IndigoBlu and use one of the new release stamps sets called "Wild Poppy". I teamed that up with the Big Butterfly #2 stamp and some IndigoBlu paints, mainly Lime Marmalade, Banana Custard, Ruby Slippers and Emerald City! What a great combination!

You can watch the entire creation process from start to finish by clicking the video link below. Don't forget to give it a thumbs up, share with your friends and subscribe to the IndigoBlu YouTube channel for more videos from the Design Team.
