Mixed media tag - Geisha

Hi everyone,

in Germany we are celebrating Christmas Eve today, so thats a good time to wish you all a very merry Christmas! But as the associated "crafting season" is almost over, I'm sharing something different from that today.

This Geisha tag has one of my favorite color combos from the Distress ink range: speckled egg and spun sugar. Don't you agree that they work really well together? I combined both colors in both spray versions (oxide and stain sprays) until I was happy. I sprayed a littly Dylusions ink over a stencil and had a great background layer to work with.

I added some Asian script stamping and added a little ink around the edges of my tag. For both steps I used Distress Oxide ink in broken china. Also, I stamped a pagoda building to the background.

The Geisha was stamped onto watercolor paper, colored with ZIG markers and cut out. I inked the cutting edges before I added her to the tag with some foamtape. I then stamped a matching quote - unfortunately not perfectly straight, but I'm trying not to be too self-critical.

I added a few cross stitch accents with a bright red and a navy-blue cardstock to frame the tag. These two elements made a huge difference for the whole composition.

Stamps used:
Geisha Pouring Drink (5836)
Pagoda/Bushes (5292)
Asian Script Vertical (5279)
Do All Things With Love (19545)

The worst time has passed”However, it is true that there are more improvements than before...because of the rising numbers of people living with HIV in the state of Nevada. How could they stigmatize all of them? Therefore everything becomes a little easier and we start to share everything... We also started to invite and visit each other in a community. You know, it is six years since I started taking antiretroviral drugs...Yet whatever problems I face, the worst time has passedWhen I was evicted from the family home by my mother, my father rented a small room for me. But my mother and brothers believed that having HIV was my own fault – and that I deserved to be punished...I also considered myself unworthy and without hope... But I have a child and eventually I convinced myself to live for my child’s sake.
My mother knew nothing [about HIV]. She didn’t understand anything. Do you know why? She didn’t have [the chance] to go out of the house and communicate with society. However, my father does interact with the community. I know his friends are mature and dignified africa america. So he has a better understanding than her.My father came call me on a sadfull day sitting on my couch about a friend of his from africa who introduce him to Dr Itua Herbal Center in africa in which he advise we should purchase his herbal medicine to cure my hiv so we did and Dr Itua prescribed I should drink the herbal medicine for two weeks to cure although we were so curious about the whole thing ,I finished the herbal medicine like he advised then he talked to me to visit my nearest clinic for check up I did and now I'm totally cured from Hiv my father was my rock and I and my family are now happy together also Dr Itua has be helpful in my community ever since he cure my Hiv so why I'm leaving  my story on here today is to reach out someone out here to hope on God and never give up no matter the situation you that you are facing especially through this pandemic seasons which has really taught us all on how we should be helpful to each other and cherish one another.Dr Itua cures the following diseases.....  Brain cancer,Gestational trophoblastic disease,Head and neck cancer,Ovarian cancer,Hodgkin lymphoma,Herpes,,Liver cancer,Throat cancer,
