There's a new challenge beginning today on Gingersnaps, where the command is *Let us spray*. Here you need to dig out your spray mists and start work on something with a Japanese flair. Here are some of the things I made this week using different techniques:
These remind me of Gilbert & Sullivan's *Three little maids who all unwary, come from a Ladies' Seminary....*
I used the tutorial from Juliet on Gingersnaps to make the bookmark dolls, and the instructions for the fan were given in a tutorial by Petra, also on Gingersnaps.
I used one of the dolls to make the simple sprayed card here. I used a mask for the moon and the tiger before spraying with some home made perfect pearls mist in spiced marmalade, and then stamped the bush and tiger with archival black before adding the doll on the left.
These are variations on a theme, using a misty picture from my stash. I made the card three times, just using different embellies.
I often use one basic layout which I alter when I need to make several cards in a short time. I wrote the Haiku - a Japanese verse with 5, 7, and 5 syllables - to finish it:
*The rising sun's warmth
Dissolves the grey fleece of mist
revealing the dew.*
Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
