I have to make an 8" x 8" piece for group exhibit at a museum with a Japanese garden and the piece has to depict something that you would see in a Japanese garden. I've been to Japan recently and have hundreds of pictures so this should have been easy. Not so! I had a hard time picking a picture and settled on this one from a fabulous garden that we visited in Nars, famous for its thousands of stone lanterns. I blogged about it here. I worked on this today (another snowy inside day), but I don't love it. I tried to have the photo transfer blend into the fabrics from my stash. It blends better in person. Here I have offset the photo image.
And here I have it centered. I think I'm going to try something totally different tomorrow. I'll post it if I do.
