Screen

I was quite inspired by some papers I picked up in the scrapbook shop last week. I realised I actually have quite a few Asian inspired bits and pieces, in fact I found even more things after I'd finished this screen! I really must have a tidy up at some stage.
I had five of these little charms when I started. I'd planned to use a jump ring to attach them but managed to break the tops of three of them in the process, way more fragile than they look.
I BIA got a bit over-excited at finally being used again and I punched one too many holes in the corner. The piece is quite unstable if the holes stop too high up and the big chunky wires I like are better for tag books rather than screens for the same stability reason. I repaired the hole with a flower, just a shame it's not an Orchid.
I cut this image out of a 'Heaven' banknote I picked up at the local Asian supermarket

Lovely Asian screen Margaret - beautiful atmospheric feel to it.
By the way, rats can make lovely pets! My daughter has two(she's 48now!)and they really are intelligent loveable creatures. Maybe not to everyone's taste though!!

WOW M, the colors you used make this screen so unique and gorgeous! Great details as always! I was wondering if you liked Asian, that thought went thru my head recently, now I know LOL!
