Paper Collage Effect

I’m always trying to improve my design skills, so I frequently find myself taking new Photoshop for Lunch classes on Skillshare from the awesome Helen Bradley. Recently, I took one called Layered Paper Collage Effect because I think this effect could lend itself nicely to a future book cover.

I didn’t have something specific in mind, so I made a flower on a gradient background. My gardening skills are very limited, so I have no idea what type of flower this might be in the real world. I had a lot of fun with this one. The effect is pretty cool, and I’m excited to try it out again in the future.
