Waitin' there for me

"I'm glad I found you waiting there for me.", that's how I feel when I read all your wonderful comments on my blog and I just had to tell you! This saying was the spark for this week's piece for Gingersnap Creations random challenge called Fans. (GC99). Come visit this group, there's so much to see, do and learn.
The pretty Asian transparency  is the base of my creation and is from Artchix Studio. I layered it over patterned paper and just love how it adds additional layers and depth. I stamped the fans from Inkadinkado on the patterned paper and added some shiny folded paper behind them. Some brown german scrap edged with blue frame the piece. The glittery medallions topped with reproduction Asian coins are actually blue snow flakes, but you can't tell!  Oh, and don't forget the tiny rhinestone earring and she was complete.
And dear friends....I'm glad I found you.
Till next time, gerri

"Fan detail"


  1. Oh such a very feminine piece. Your technique for creating the fans worked magic. They look so real. Thanks for dropping by my blog so often, Gerri. Wish you could come in for coffee. :o) hugs from Mexico, Donna

  2. I love how you made the fans and your clever use of snowflakes.

  3. A really beautiful piece. Love the way you created the fans too !
    Hugs, Amy

  4. What a beautiful creation, great job Gerri

  5. This is such an enchanting piece love the use of acetate over the paper but for me that little earing is the icing on the cake so simple but also magic.

    I totally agree with the previous comment that this is "enchanting".
