Little Book of Geishas

Hasn't this year already been flying by, it only seems like yesterday we were celebrating the New Year and here we are celebrating it again.......well the Chinese New Year that is.  If you haven't noticed around here lately the team have been sharing a gorgeous array of projects for this celebration marking the start of the 'Year of the Horse' as part of our January Challenge Theme.  So be sure to check both here and on the Challenge Blog for all the fabulous art from the Altered Pages Team.

I love all oriental inspired art and decor so having all the wonderful Oriental Collage Sheets already out along with a few other bits and pieces from Altered Pages, I decided to work some more on my little ATC Book.  I had started this a few months's my little book of Geishas and I thought I would share it with you all today.


Altered Pages has a wonderful selection of Oriental Collages Sheets featuring Cherry Blossoms, Geishas, & Dragon's to name a few and be sure to check out the fabulous Asian Joss Papers too!

  1. Danie makes beauty look so easy! This would be a lovely piece to have on the coffee or entrance table in a New Year vignette.

  2. I love that cherry blossom pattern on your piece- I LOVE that collage with the Asian backgrounds. Beautiful work Danie!

  3. Beautiful ATC mini book. It would make a lovely piece to sit out for all to see.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
