ATC's - Geisha's

First set of three

Second set of three

These are two sets of ATC's I worked on this weekend. I am in a swap where we are to make three Geisha ATC's for three in return. I thought I would work on these and see where I went with them. I like to start early/they are not due till June/ and experiment a little till I come up with something I like. These are pretty traditional, but Geisha's were part of old traditions, also. I love working with Washi paper. It is so thick and printed so beautifully. Off to make some more arty ones...

Your Geisha's are beautiful Elizabeth! You have very effectively caught their personalities. Loved the Whisperer as well and the story with it. Susan :)
