IMG_20131114_133521

A new collage using vintage postcards and photos. I used a beautiful Japanese prayer card a square of gold cardboard from a box of French chocolates, a vintage photograph of Mt. Fuji and orangy twine with a tiny cut- out from a vintage postcard. Handwritten words on Japanese paper.

A Japanese friend of mine translated the prayer card for me.

It’s an ancient prayer for a well balanced, happy life.
