Its been too long since I've blogged.I was caring for my dad who had a stroke November 2012 In that whole time I have very little time to myself. I lost him. He passed away this past November.
I joined a swap a Split Coast Stampers. I thought it might help me engage in things I used to enjoy. It was a a Christmas Elf SS Swap. My father had passed away during the swap and it was difficult. However, when I got mine I was smiling from ear to ear. She was understanding and patient as I was taking on a lot with the passing of my father.
I became behind in another swap that I was happy doing and she too was very understanding. I decided to join a couple more to get me back into the groove again. It was definitely a challenge for me with the two projects you see below.
I've never created an Asian card before stalked the net for ideas. You'll never guess what turned out to be my inspiration! KARATE KID LOL "wax on wax off" :)
Now I think it turned out okay but like I said it was a challenge.
The photo below is the shutter doors, I used vellum to make it look like the Japanese doors made with frosted glass. I think it was glass, or maybe some sort of rice paper.
This is the inside with a silhouette of a bamboo branch on the Red Sun.
Here is another project I did for a swap. I have always wanted to try and make a mini tin. I love vintage, shabby chic etc.. I forgot to take photos of all of the tin. I used small coned bead caps as feet on them so it can stand like a little mini box..The inside of the tins were pillowed with fabric.
Thanks for looking and let me know what you think. :)
