We need tranquility

Good morning everyone,

I hope your New Year has been going well. For me, most of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season and the clean up after that is done and some sense of normalcy and routine is coming back to our lives. Just at a right time for me, Crafter’s Companion has just released a new collection of Kanji stamps – lots of unique and meaningful Asian sentiment and images.

This collection intimidated me at first – I didn’t recognize any of those Asian characters and I have never done any Asian art – even if I am Asian! But as I was working through my supplies looking for Asian embellishments and papers to use (I have few of those too), my creative juices started perculating. I found in my supplies some mulberry papers, flowers and leaves looking like Cherry Blossoms and willow, bamboo skewers and chopsticks (those were extras from some takeout I ate at my desk), Asian images on Western papers like a trendy fusion mix (this I found in Basic Grey and Kaiser Craft paper collections), I even though of stamping these Asian characters as my background paper!

I was very excited about the possibilities this set was generating. Here is what I came with:

The unexpected can surprise you. I hope you will have as much fun with this set as I did.

Here’s wishing you tranquility for the New Year ahead.
