Asian Influences

The other day I got out my Asian stash of papers, images, and rubber stamps, plus a few not so Asian things, to fullfill my end of a one-on-one swap with Margaret.
She sent me her ATCs and inchie books in no time.
Me, it's now been two months and I am just now getting around to creating something for her!
And I never did post her lovelies I received
(her envelope is here somewhere!)
It's a wonder Margaret doesn't remove me from her blog roll.
A peek at the ATCs I made her.
The reverse sides are decorated too, but I didn't get pictures before mailing.
Maybe she will show the reverse?
My envelope should be arriving in Switzerland any day now.

Art Chix geisha, rubber stamps and the metal fan is one of a pair of earrings I found at the thrift store for 10 cents!
Other pages have fortune cookie wrappers, parts of Asian business cards, and such.

Margaret sent me two tiny inchie books.
With all of the images and rubber stamps I have, an inch was much too small a canvas, so I opted for a dog tag book (thank you Virginia for sharing your cast offs!)
Now I want to make one for myself!

Maybe after Christmas!

Beautiful! Also the dog tags would make an awesome piece of jewelry. I love it!
