Since I can remember I have been intrigued by the fascinating world of Japanese Geisha's. Arthur Golden's Memoires of a Geisha is one of my favourite books of alltimes. When I saw the new collection Konnichiwa by Basic Grey I knew I wanted to scrap a geisha photo. Unfortunately I have never been to Japan, so the picture is not taken by me. I seem to be in a fussy cutting scrappy phase, 'cause again a lot of this layout is cut from the PP of the collection: the lantarn garland and the branches. The large lantarns are stamped by the Bo Bunny serenity stamp set onto the PP of Basic Grey and then cut out. I got inspired by the beautiful hair decoration of the geisha, so I thought I could make the same garland from pink litte inchies whcih I folded and then attached together with a thread. The pink & red flowers are created from fabric and for an extra Japanses touch I added chopsticks which I had lying in my kitchen drawer ;-). The title is made from alphas which I glued on a piece of acetate, which is glued to the chopstick.
Thanks for looking!
