Buddhist Temple

This is the first of four 12″x 12″ Scrapbook pages that I created using photos of our visit to the Buddhist Temple, in Richmond, B.C. Canada. I adapted Sketch #30 by Kim Keane., used a red paper doily, gold colored beads, pop dots, hot glue, a glue gun, ribbon, string beads, which remind me of the fountains and the incense which people burnt. The title alphabet is called Chop Suey, which I got from Print Mag and did with a Black Calligraphy marker.  The rubber-stamp at the top is from a set called Quatro Elementos by Hero Arts.

My inspiration for the other pages are “China” in the Deluxe Color Blocking Idea book by Jolleen Hansen (Author), Amanda McLaws (Author). On the second page I used small Asian coins, photo-corners, ribbon and  rubber-stamp from a set called Quatro Elementos by Hero Arts. The business card I got at the temple.

On this page, I used Fibers and Sculpey clay with a rubber-stamp from the set called Quatro Elementos by Hero Arts. See next photo for detail of the tags.

A close up of the Buddhist Tag, which contains more information about the photos. My inspiration for the tag was Oriental Beaded tag from a Stamping and Papercraft magazine.
Gift Tag Templates from Rubber-stamping about.com, the Buddhist wood mounted rubber stamp is by Stampin’ Up! Travels Abroad Retired Stamp Set, in the top right hand corner is one of the stamps from a set Authentic rubber-stamps by Buzzy Brands, I also used ink-pads, make up sponges, fibers, a small Asian coin, a brad, photo-corners, embroidery floss, beads, rubber-stamp from a set called Quatro Elementos by Hero Arts, etc.

The last page has a pocket, as you can see in the next photo, for a close-up.

I got the brochure at the temple, you can see it here. The Chinese calligraphy is from Wikipedia. I used the Quattro Elementos Wood mounted rubber-stamps by Hero Arts again, a tassel, another small Asian coin, Authentic rubber-stamps by Buzzy Brands, brads, gold stickles,  etc. I used a hair-dryer to dry the stickles as they take long to dry.

I photographed the front page by hanging a curtain over the back of a door, over the door hooks, with a small table in front.

  1. Really striking. Muc Better Half would kill for your work station. Her one hasn’t yet been replaced since our move. It is supposed to be in a Gemini hut, but that is still full of boxes etc.

    • I’m glad you like it ♥
      I actually have a craft room in the basement, but in the winter I work at the office table, as the basement gets cold, the lights are fluorescent and I need sunlight in the winter.
      My portable craft station works for me 😉
      A Gemini hut sounds wonderful !
