The Feminine Beauty of the Asian Aesthetic
After reading several posts on Facebook about the virtues of reducing clutter and purging possessions, I took a critical look around. An avid collector, I have amassed both valuables and detritus from everywhere. Some of it is on display, some of it is stockpiled in labeled boxes, and some of it is strewn randomly about. Serious winnowing will take some time, but I decided to commit a journal to "use it up." I started with one of my boxes of paper collected during my many trips to China, and I looked for stamps and other elements that would coordinate. After admiring the journal posts at Art Journal Journey, I decided to do a spread recognizing the feminine beauty in the Asian aesthetic.
As a final stamp, I parted with some Asian themed postage stamps to move around the page.
