Friday Egg: Eight Poppies, Eight Ferns

A new design this week!  I was just doodling along with my usual divisions and came up with this design of skinny triangles.  I thought it was perfect for single poppies, sort of like a series of bud vases.  And then the ferns fit right in since they are so geometric.  I will be doing more of this design in the future, so keep an eye out!

I started with a white egg for the basic division lines.  I used a medium kistka for the triangles divisions and the star design at top and bottom.  Next was Golden Wheat, a rich deep yellow that I really love right now.  Again, I used a medium kistka to make the division lines on the star at top and bottom.  The poppies were done with the XX fine point kistka, and the fern leaves were done with a fine kistka.  The next color was green, then orange, scarlet and finally black.

I hope you enjoy it!
