I loved watching "Memoirs of a Geisha" for the Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. This movie is so beautiful! The colors, the story, the actors...I could watch it again and still love it.
My inspiration came from the handkerchief The Chairman gave Chiyo when she was a little girl. Chiyo/Sayuri protects this handkerchief as if it's her most prized possession.
The inner white square on this card is my interpretation of the handkerchief stamped with the Kanji symbol for love.
I love origami and washi papers. I have several stacks of them. This was a good reason to use some. I first made a kimono using the instructions from this YouTube video. I didn't use the kimono, because I kept thinking about the handkerchief.
