Day 214 ~ Make something with toothpicks.

Wanted to try the kimono idea again. And in the 6X8 format. I cut the shape of the kimono out of a watercolor I did. Cut the toothpicks to fit the panels of the kimono and glued them into place onto the watercolor. Painted them with white acrylic, added squares for surface design. Mounted the toothpick kimono onto foam core and then onto another piece of the same watercolor, trimmed with gold paint. The writing is on a translucent paper, sewn to the backing with beads.
