GeishaThis is my DT project for this week’s Anything Goes challenge at Creative Fingers.  We are being sponsored by the fabulous Aurora Wings this time, where this image, Miyabi, can be found.  I printed her on kraft card stock and colored her with pencil crayons.  Since I haven’t been able to scrape up the cash for a good set, and any hints I’ve dropped have fallen on deaf ears, I used really cheap, grade school pencil crayons, that I blended with mineral spirits and a blending stub.  I’m really happy with how she turned out.  But I still want good pencils!!! I cut her out and matted her on black CS that I rubbed with gold.  The background is Kraft core paper that I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, then sanded, and cut around the edges.  I punched and shaped some flower blossoms to tie in with her hairpiece, and added little gold centers to them.  I’ve had the oriental coins in my stash for forever and decided that this was the perfect project for them!! I strung them on black floss, that I tied into a tassel at the bottom.  Hope to see you at the challenge at Creative Fingers!!!
