In between all of this, I've been doing a couple more little projects for kid's classes, which I will put up later once the classes have been done next month.
Back to this one. I've been so excited to get my Bo Bunny Serenity collection papers, that I had bought a plain wooden fan shaped ornament to decorate before the papers even came in to the shop. When they finally came in, I had to have one of everything they ordered. I've wanted to do a Chinese/Oriental inspired project for a while and these papers, with their Chinese characters and cherry blossoms, are the perfect foil for the fan.

|Prep your wooden board and stand. I sanded the edges to get rid of rough edges and brushed on two coats of gesso, then let it dry.|

I initially thought to place a couple of photos into the design but decided against it and kept it purely as an ornament. This way, it will not date with the photos and makes a lovely focal piece on my sideboard.
