Dress #24 Mint Green Swirls

A close-up of dress #24 demonstrates the rich variety of leaves, flowers, and stamp prints.
On delicate, mint green handmade paper from Thailand, this dress is made with many leaves, long stem flowers, and a single Madagascar cactus leaf (yellow). It is full of movement from the long, curves of the flowers. Imagine a skirt as a spiral or corkscrew shape.

The soft green and copper colors were inspired by the cover of this beautiful writing journal.

Another close-up shows the close lines of the cactus leaf's veins in yellow. Cactus leaves often have stunning vein designs.
