Bought this gorgeous image from A day for Daisies either just before Christmas or just after, started to colour and then discarded as I thought my colouring was rubbish.

Then I saw the challenge at A day for Daisies was to add RED to your projects which reminded me I had already started colouring this image.

Having finished colouring the image I had a look through some papers, I remembered I had some which were a Oriental themed.  Unfortunately none of them worked!

Decided the leave this project and look at another one I had on the go.  Well I found all these papers I really liked and thought would work together but didn't work with the image I was using but did work with this one!

With the papers sorted I played around with various designs and combinations.  I thought I would make into a book/journal - mainly for the longevity of it.

Was going to add a black flat back pearl to the bottom corner but in my eagerness I forgot!  May add later!
