WELCOME TO NATURE’S PALETTE  PHOTO CARDS

“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.” Gerard de Nerval

“Flowers are the sweetest things God ever made, and forgot to put a soul into.”  Henry Beecher, Life Thoughts,1858

“Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn towards the light and that makes them beautiful!” Jim Carrey

“The flowers of late Winter and early Spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size.” Gertrude S. Wister

My name is Debra Konrad. I am a Photographer and Stationery Artist.

I have enjoyed having my photo cards and framed photographs on display at  a variety of outdoor venues such as  CeleBrampton’s Exhibit,  The Art in Open Exhibit at Brampton’s Farmer’s Market, as well as Kleinburg’s  Binder Twine Fall Festival.

I have also shown my photography at some indoor Craft Markets such as The Retired Women Teachers group, the North Bramalea United Church Bazaar as well as the Christian Women’s Club. I am always inspired by meeting other artists and crafts people at these events!

I was honoured to be chosen to have my framed photography on exhibit at the Holiday Arts Showcase at the Rose Theatre Art Gallery in Brampton.

I  chose the title of “Nature’s Palette” for my photo cards because I see the natural beauty of flowers in all their glorious spectrum of colours as an artist’s palette! I love capturing the beauty of all of the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Winter, and Autumn! I have always loved Nature, gardening, photography and scrap booking as my favourite pastimes. Recently, I came up with a new creative project that blends my love of flowers, photos and scrap booking by creating floral photo cards!

I scanned over 1000 of my favourite photos. Then I selected a wide array of scrapbook papers to set off each individual photo. I cut the coloured paper and pasted it onto the front cover of a card stock note card. Then I pasted the photo on top and pressed them. Each 5×7 photo card comes with a matching envelope and has a protective cellophane covering.

These note cards are blank inside so that they may be used for all special occasions.

My floral cards are designed in the same way that giving a bouquet of fresh flowers to people as a gift for many special occasions such as: weddings, birthdays, thank yous, congratulations, Mother’s Day, anniversaries, retirements, house warming or any other celebration!

I get so much joy from taking photos and creating my handcrafted cards and I hope that the people who receive them as a gift will also derive much pleasure in receiving them!

I also have a collection of framed 11” x 17” enlargements of my photographs for sale.
