Geisha Rising

Today for Retro Cafe Art here's  a piece that's alittle bit different.... Its a shrine in a box using a Geisha theme. Of course, there's plenty of color and glitter too.

To make this I started with  the Retro Cafe Art collage sheet called Geisha Rising and cut out the beautiful Geisha  images. I took a little box and covered it with patterned paper napkins. I used some grunge board scrolls and painted them gold for the cover. All the geisha images were touched with water color paint and gold Stickles. The embellishments included asian coins, gold scroll stickers, 3d lanterns, a paper kimono and mahjong tiny pieces. The hand cut  poetry script says "The floating clouds their state shall lend to her, for her the willow bend."

Hope you'll try something different this week.
artfully yours,
"The floating clouds their state shall lend to her, for her the willow bend"
