I've been a Folk It! Ambassador for nearly two years now and although I teach the wonderful brush stroke techniques of Folk Art to others (and absolutely LOVE doing so) I still have much to learn myself. Cue the Folk It! online studio and their fab tutorials.
I've painted poppies before but not like this, I've been waiting patiently for this particular tutorial for a while now so was thrilled when Folk It! announced it was live. The wait was definitely worth it! Everything you need to know so that you can paint this beautiful poppy design is provided - a list of supplies, poppy pattern and step by glorious step instructions for the design itself. Carol breaks it all down into manageable sections. Starting with the new 'push-pull brush stroke' Carol takes you through the poppy petal by petal, then the leaves before putting all of together to complete the whole design (my first practice in my art journal). It's a lovely, transferrable design (gift box and light bottle) and all of the Folk It! tutorials are at unbeatable bargain prices so it's a win-win all round.
