Topic: Pretty Paper
The challenge for week 3 of this month on the papercrafting list was 'oriental'.
I actually have a drawer in the studio where I keep all supplies with an Asian theme. From that drawer, I pulled a dyed geometric paper with a little bit of glitz, a picture of an oriental landscape painting, a black and white drawing of a lady and a cocktail umbrella.
I colored the lady with Distress markers in colors that would coordinate with the umbrella and the backgrounds. Then I used a craft knife to trim her away from the background.
I layered both backgrounds and the lady. Then I trimmed the cocktail umbrella to create a fan and mounted that with a nailhead sticker at the base.
I used an Asian stamp on the geometric paper.
A red folded base card serves as a border for the illustrations.
