I'm shaking in my boots Tongue I'm irrationally terrified that my first ATC won't pass muster because I don't have a colour printer (rather, no ink for said printer), so the background is greyscale. That's not exactly up to snuff with the amazing multimedia creations I see on here!

Yuki (her name means "snow") is pieced in four sections, all hand-drawn separately with the crappiest "art pen" on the planet (seriously, where did my pens go?!?!?!). The bits were all cut with a pocket knife because my boyfriend's scrapbooking blades have sprouted legs and run off Tongue Her hair is fake Mongolian sheep fur with a scrap of orange cotton yarn around her bun. She's supposed to be a bit melancholy, in a serene way that only a geisha can be.

Oh, lovely! I read your blog post and understand now more about your greyscale issue. You know, it doesn't matter that much since your tree/leaves and mountains are fabulously painted and your geisha is oh-so-graceful. I can't keep my eyes off the tree, though. LOVE!

Cheers,
Susan

I gotta say I'm pretty happy to get such positive comments for my first shaky try Tongue Some of you papercrafters literally make my jaw drop with your amazing work!

I saw that ink drawing of the pine and Mt. Fuji and knew it was the perfect backdrop for the feeling I wanted to convey. Here's the link to the Library of Congress page for those interested:

They have THE most amazing collection of Japanese artwork!
