These ATCs are for a swap on International Women and I couldn't resist the temptation to join the swap. My next collaborative moleskin will be on the theme of Ancient Egypt and so I began with this Egyptian royal lady for practise. I have a November swap partner who want's a Japanese lady, so this Japanese lady will be the model for her card. In San Diego, you see plenty of beautiful Mexan ladies in traditional dress of all kinds, but I especially love the embroidered flower dress or blouse and own a few myself. Not only are they beautiful, but they are comfortable. I also own a few kimonos, but I only bring them out to show - never to wear. I also love Ireland and love Celtic art, here is a flaming redhead. You could never tell, but I have quite a bit of Irish and Japanese in me, and I came out looking like I could be from any country with dark haired brunettes.
