ID: Meandering Lotus - Be Like A Lotus
2.6"w x 2.6."h x 1/2" thk.

sorry: unavailable

I recently saw a u-tube video (RISD Adjunct Professor Clara Lieu) showing how to create the meandering Lotus and of course I was intrigued...

I used 4 colors of Elephant Hide paper which creases and folds fabulously. It's best to have an odd number of pages so I Cut 9 pieces to 5"sq. It creates pages that are 2.5"sq.

Created the covers from mat board approx 1/8" wider on all sides and covered with some oriental paper from my stash. Tied a red ribbon to hold the booklet closed.

Wrote in the quote using a 3.0 empty Parallel pen and Holbien Permanent White gouache.

Added various lotus flowers both hand drawn and rubber stamped and colored with Artistro pens and colored pencils.

Quote: Be like the lotus, trust in the light, grow thru the dirt, believe in new beginnings.
