Just Breathe

For the next two weeks we will be featuring Designer’s Favorites – We asked each design team member to showcase their favorite Paper House Productions products in a project.  Melissa is kicking things off with this beautiful piece featuring her favorite: Orchid ColorWays.


Hi everyone! Melissa here with a card that uses a stunningly realistic photo of lavender by   Paper House. Purple is one of my favorite colors, and I love both the appearance and         fragrance of these little beauties.


Supplies Used:


To make this card I surrounded the flower image with a layer of gesso, and then glued on tulle, glitter, microbeads, pearls, rhinestones, glitter, sequins and some small pieces from the Gatsby Accent Pack. I put some gesso on the texture in random areas. I brushed on metallic paint, a mix of mica powder and water, and oil pastels, on top of the gesso.


  I think it’s cool how the background paper looks like canvas.


Thank you so much for looking, and have a great day!
