Today I am sharing one of my Gecko Galz Design Team projects that uses some of this month’s new releases that have an oriental theme:
In my teens I went through an oriental phase and my bedroom was decorated with blossoms, lanterns, paper parasols and bamboo, so these papers and images instantly appealed.
The pretty image is from the Japanese Tradition ephemera set. Don’t you just love the glow from that lantern? It reminds me of a painting, by John Singer Sargent. If you like his work, you can see more of it, as well as browsing the work of more than 4,000 artists, over at a fabulous website called Artsy.
I’ve created mats and layers from pale blue and olive green cardstock which coordinate with the background paper which is from the Mori Girl paper pack.
I’ve added some diamond satin ribbon, from Really Reasonable Ribbon, down the side and added a bow that I hope is a little like an obi on a kimono.
The finishing touch was to add a little cluster of sweetheart blossoms, again using colours that reflect those of the background paper.
Thanks for buzzing by.
