I made this paper on old lined paper from a pad,
I had stamped some script then pored some ink
 with the film wrap and gold leaf.
I stamped on all my stash pieces and the canvas with
part of a stamp with birds, had to add those being a magpie :).
There everywhere..

I used the peace bling symbol, I'm a big advocate for
peace in the world and in our lives, funny story when
I was showing this to my friend Jan she said the peace
sign is upside down, I tried to change it but it wasn't moving.
Can you see the copper thread here too.

I love this stamp, the character means friend and
friends are a blessing and this old soul has been blessed.
It of course was stamped on tissue paper.
The silver earring I got in England it has a matching ring,
I lost one, so added it because I wear a lot of silver
I love it, its attached with a clothes pine with a mirrored
bird,  sadly I didn't get the little darling in this shot. 

My Japanese ladies head holding my flowers,
I photo copied a stack of them when I was making
my DS a large screen, she had an old bamboo screen.
I made 8 geisha ladies on rice paper  for the panels.
The flower I cut out of coffee filter with some gesso,
hand cut, which is why its kinda wonky:). 

This flower I used a punch with some painted water color
paper, I used gold leaf paint to do the earrings and hair things .

Love and Namaste, I'm all about LOVE, each other
and ourselves..
I used some sticky letters for my favorite word,
 ( really need to get some ink
for my printer) on some inked water color paper
I tore just about everything out and inked all the edges.
That's all about me hope you enjoyed the show, can
you believe it took me about 2 hrs to do this post,
so I think its time to say thanks so much for reading
all my craziness, I wish you all a wonderful  creative day.

It was worth reading through the posts to see just how you constructed this beautiful piece - I adore the little origami dress - a wonderful finishing touch. Hugs, Anne x

Namaste Cousin! I love, love, loved this project! You are a lovely soul as well as an old one! I forget to say in my previous comment I am crazy about fans! We have a fan museum near where I live, which I think you would love. It is called The Fan Museum, Greenwich. This canvas is truly beautiful, Dianne. I love it because it is exquisite and detailed and it speaks, if you know what I mean! I wonder if we were friends in another time? You like so many of the things I do and the same colours and effects seem to call to you! Julie Ann xxx
