Amongst the Poppies I Sit by Lynne Moncrieff


I got a surprise when I opened the package to see the size of the Prima stamp – this stamp is huge. However, it has made me realise that in future I need to pay attention to the dimensions of a stamp!

I created this art journal style panel.



Prima Foam Stamps – Poppies and Peonies – Poppy Bunch
Cosmic Shimmer Chalk Paints:- Tuberose, Spiced Raspberry, Jasmine, Vanilla
Luminarte Twinkling H20s (I used a variety of pinks and reds)
Artist’s Palette Knife (or old credit card)
White Watersoluble Crayon (or substitute with Distress Paint Picket Fence)
Extras:- Muslin, fabric



Tear manila cardstock into approximately three panels. Lay two panels aside for another day.

Adhere torn pieces of floral fabric and muslin with Gel Medium.

Swipe Cosmic Shimmer chalk paints onto panel. Mist with water, allowing paint to drip.  Heat set. 

Stamp three of the flowers onto the panel with Black Soot Distress Paint. Leave to dry.
Flick pink and red Twinkling H20s onto panel.

Randomly stamp handwriting (Textures stamp set) randomly.

Journal onto the stems of the flowers. 
Finally, flick more paint onto panel including white watersoluble crayon and apply Black Soot to edges.


Until next time,



  1. This is amazing, Lynne! I love how you have journalled on the stems!
