Geisha Girlie

Yes I'm back with yet another mixed media canvas! I'm addicted to these things because you really can't go wrong, just let your creative flag fly and before you know it you have a masterpiece you can't wait to share with everyone! Today I thought I'd use one of my SOG clear stamps, Geisha Kaylee. I just LOVE the Asian inspired look of this gal and her kimono and flowers in her hair remind me of one of my favorite movies, Memoirs of a Geisha. Its such a beautiful love story that I thought Geisha Kaylee would be just perfect for my theme

Geisha Kaylee

I started off by layering the background with a few book pages and some cherry blossom paper from my stash and distressing with sand paper. I used acrylic paint in light pink mixed with water to create a wash and used a red gelato around the edges. I also used the same red gelato to draw a few flowers and a water brush to spread the color. I stamped here and there with the stamps that came with the set as well as a few I've had a while and printed the sentiment off of my computer. I love pink so right now I think I have a winner as far as my favorite so far but who knows what I'll come up with next, pink and cupcakes maybe...? You'll just have to wait and see! Hope to see some mixed media projects from you guys for the SOG July Linky Party

Oh I also had a scrap of cherry blossom paper left over so I created this ornament for my new friend who has a love of Asian themed things, also using Geisha Kaylee and a few of the stamps included with the set. Colored with my copics and stamped on ceramic bisque like my coaster projects and sealed with a spray on acrylic, she loved it! I even added wink of stella to her fan and the lace on the kimono for a little extra shimmer.


I mounted the cherry blossom paper on the back blank side of the ornament but goofed up and forgot to take a picture of the completed backside before giving it away, so you'll just have to imagine lol!
