Now that I have temporary internet access (aka Starbucks), I'm able to share at least one project with you. Please be patient as my posting schedule may be off due to my ability to access the internet. Let's just pray that I can regain internet access by mid week... (right Oceanic?)
Until then, here's my first introductory post... meet Mitsuyo! My Aunty's middle name is Mitsuyo and I recently got to spend some time with her earlier this year. She is awesome! She is older than my mom but still acts really young. I think this image captures her young spirit!
Let me give you some background on this image... My sister and I were discussing possible images for upcoming releases. One of the images we discussed was having a crane image for our growing collection. She did some research and came up with this cute rendition of the dancing cranes. Instead of the crane dancing with other cranes, she made the crane dancing with Mitsuyo. Click here for more dancing crane images...
On to my project... I have been immersed in craft fair prep over the last couple of months. One of my main things I specialize in is calendars. Every year I try to make different types of calendars to offer variety. This is my newest calendar that I came up with this year. Last year, I made these in a 12" x 12" size. While I still make those, I decided to add a 8 1/2" x 11" size this year. Although the image comes where the girl and crane are connected in one image, you can always split them up as I have done here...
Here's a better look at the crane. I accented it's wings with gold Smooch (my favorite for gold accents).
Forgot to mention that the washi paper used is by Hanko Designs... you can find this and a large variety of washi paper on their website. (Thanks Hanko!)
I have more project shares coming up the rest of this week so check back soon to see my other creations.
