Old Japanese Illustrations
I have been inspired by Karen, the GraphicsFairy and her wonderful selection of vintage images. I started looking through some of my old books for images. I found a Japanese book with some wonderful illustrations but unfortunately I cannot read Japanese.
I found this sweet image of a young woman with a quilt and an origami crane. On top of the quilt appears some papers (a scrapbook perhaps?) and on top of the papers is a pair of Japanese scissors. She reminded me of all of the crafts I enjoy.
I scanned the image, changed the colors in Photoshop and added the type. A very simple project today.
