Gingersnap Creations Geisha !



For the past four months which is the length of time that I have been crafting I have been following Gingersnap Creations challenges. I love their site and am constantly amazed at the standard of art that is posted to it. All of their challenges are unique and very interesting and I have been tempted on several occasions to have ago but to be honest I'm just a little intimidated. Today I decided that I would throw caution to the wind in the hope that it wouldn't  come back and smack me in the face ! I'm sure those lovely ladies don't bite and if they do they will just have to catch me first !

My Geisha is a lovely stamp by Crafty Individuals underneath I have once again printed onto acetate one of my lovely Japanese designs which is then placed over some gorgeous handmade paper. Unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice , I must find me a better photographer or at least try to take the pictures in the daytime !

Hope you enjoy it and please be gentle with me.

Marie

  9. I think this is beautiful! I can relate to not being happy with the photographing. My hubby donated his light box and tripod. But it is still too much trouble. He's retired from photography and work. Why doesn't he take the pics???

  16. Hi Marie! Your geisha is absolutely stunning!! I love that you've layered printed acetate over decorative paper (gorgeous!) and that is a fabulous geisha stamp!! I'm still in shock that you've only been crafting for a few months! Did I read that right?? Your work is fabulous! :)
