Desert silhouette backdrops

Here is an update to my clay cactus and pinch pot post from last week - we made dramatic backdrops! Photographing our pots for Artsonia was an important step for this lesson, so we decided to create a setting appropriate for our hot-climate-loving plants. Using black construction paper, we cut a silhouette of a desert and placed it in front of a multicolored tissue paper. I think they really set off the clay pieces nicely!


  1. so great! the backdrops really enhance the pieces! where did you get the multicolored tissue?

    1. Hmmm - I've had it awhile, so I don't remember specifically, but I do almost all my ordering from Dick Blick so check there first!
