Mon's entry in Roz' journal
Roz' beautiful journal has the theme "Oriental". I dove right in without a clue of where the pages would lead. I first added two "doors" to give me more space to work on. The pages evolved with different layers and materials and stitching.
It is a kind of an Asian fusion page reminding me of Chinese wedding cabinets, Japanese kimonos, Chinese Cheong Sams and lanterns.
The doors open to reveal a lotus pond with free machine embroidered Koi made from vintage Japanese Kimono silk fabric.
I first collaged these pages with an old Chinese Feng Shui Horoscope calendar pages...
before painting on top.
I really enjoyed working in Roz' journal.
