Asian Flair



So I will admit, I'm not all that into the asian look. I don't know why, it just never really appealed to me, but I did get an asian feeling with this dragonfly image from Rubbernecker. I'd had some washi paper for the longest time, so I paired it with a simple distressed looking piece of lime patterned paper from Basic Grey and came up with this.




I also created the little hand-made paper beads by cutting two long, narrow triangular strips and rolling them around a piece of jute. A little dab of glue, and there you have it - home-made asian inspired paper beads.


Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker, SU!
Paper: SU! Brocade Blue, Georgia Pacific, Basic Grey, washi paper
Ink: Adirondack Jet Black, Versafine Black, SU! Close to Cocoa, Artichoke
Accessories: Copic Markers, Jute, Stickles, sponges
