When I saw these absolutely gorgeous papers at OnStage in Charlotte, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. Every time that I’ve had a conversation about these papers, people have commented that they are reminded of Monet’s art with these pretty sheets. It turns out that we aren’t mistaken in this thought. Stampin’ Up! shared with us earlier that the artist behind these papers was inspired to create them by a visit to New York. Here’s what she said:

While I was admiring Monet’s massive water lily paintings at the Museum of Modern Art and Metropolitan, I was inspired to do a Monet-esque page in the Designer Series Paper of impressionistic water lilies.

– Julie Alusa, Stampin’ Up! artist

My biggest concern with using these papers is how to have the pretty patterns be the highlight of a project without overwhelming other elements. I decided to give it a try with this sketch – the vertical panel seemed like a good opportunity to use a bit of the paper with some white space around it to help it stand out. I’m happy with the result – what do you think?
