Sayonara

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...
