The theme is Geishas - for the Chestnut Theme Challenge at Gingersnap Creations… my creation this time is all hand made, from paper to the print. I bought this really beautiful yellow hand made mulberry paper and added that as the backdrop for my beautiful Geisha. i painted the geisha using re-inkers of t!m's distress ink range, and then for her dress i cut out some fabric i had lying around and pasted them. since actual geisha's decorate their hair either with flowers or ornaments i wanted to add the same flair to mine. so the punched flowers and the ribbon bow adds as a final touch….

a close up!

Hope you enjoy my version of geisha...

Happy New Year Sri Lankans!!!

Today is the traditional new year for us Sri Lankans, for some of you who don't know;

Sri Lanka is a small island in the middle of the indian ocean, earlier days it was known as the pearl of the indian ocean. we are a tropical land full of greenery. Our mother tongue is Sinhalese but we speak English as our second language. April New Year goes back to our roots in the Sri Lanka's history, its connected with fertility of the harvest, which has given birth to many customs and traditions. its also a wonderful holiday for all of us….

so i made this card to wish everyone (in sinhalese)

The card says
"Wishing a Happy New Year"

The Typewriter

It's another challenge, and again combined with my collection theme, this time its Gingersnap Creations - Redhead Challenge - Typewriters.
The moment i saw this, the idea that came was to do an actual typewriter so, i added the wires to give an old looking type writer. Like this one below;

so this here is my version of the typewriter challenge;
