Poppies are one of my favorite flowers. It’s extraordinary when you come upon a field of poppies in the median of the highway. I always want to stop and sit at the edge of the gently stirring red expanse. It’s like the flowers are slowly inhaling and exhaling. Which, I guess they are in a way.
I mixed red and neon orange to come up with a living, vivid red for these invites. I love the result.
And thank you notes, too!
I did these with black lines, but I also made some with brown.
What I love about screen printing is that the “imperfect” prints are sometimes more beautiful than the “perfect” prints.
This print lined up as well as can be expect. And I think it’s lovely.
This print was a little off, and I can’t take my eyes off of it!
