I make these paper earrings by first doing a colorful abstract painting. Once the painting is dry I cut out the shapes of Dragonfly wings from the back so that I get random colors for each of wings. Then I cut the same shape out of 140# cold pressed water color paper. I glue 3 layers of the water color together and the painted paper on top. The layers are first sealed with varnish, then I add embellishments and seal with clear resin.
