geisha atc fan

Okay, yes, these pictures are pretty horrible--if
I could have the camera in hand, AND a day with just
a little bit of sunshine, maybe these would be

and then you can't seem to get a good shot of it?
Maybe that's just me . . .

ANYWAY, this is a simple atc fan--nothing elaborate.

images from Altered Pages, gorgeous gold German
scrap, and a little ink, of course!

This is for the new Random Redhead Fan Challenge at
Gingersnap Creations
--the design team has come up

and join in the fun!

made a year or so ago. All the images came from
Altered Pages--maybe you remember them, as they
were available for a time as project kits:

(This one was also published in Altered Arts magazine.)

Fun stuff! I hope to see your fan creations soon!
