Geishas Galore !




Hi, the theme at Gingersnaps today is Geisha. Well when I was told this my reaction was Help... I have only one Geisha stamp and this was a freebie from the Craft Stamper magazine a long time ago. Now I have Geisha pictures, but totally forgot I had them, so it was all make do and mend am afraid.

But once I started had great problems stopping.......lol First I did some journal pages, then I made a small card and after that a handbag card..........whoa, enough is enough you have gone into overload Netty.........lol I chose the Handbag card as my DT piece as it was more sophisticated than the others I had done.......lol Anyways it all shows how much fun you can have. (if you double click my journal pages you will see it much clearer, well thats if you want to....)

Hoping to see you over there at Gingersnaps with all your great designs. Just off for my lunch now but will catch up with you all later. Have a lovely afternoon and take care, Annette x

I had the same thought Netty - only the little freebie stamp, but you have done sooo much with that little stamp! All of your pieces are lovely. Thanks for the inspiration.

And thank you too for your tip on my blog about watercolours - no I didn't know about that! So thankyou.

Great pieces, Netty!
