I went a little overboard with this mingle. I created a 16 page booklet with the story of Lord Buddha and the meanings of the hand /finger positions. I used a parchment tan colored stationary and used my computer to create and print the text. I sewed the spine with a 2 ply walnut brown waxed linen thread and a gold metallic thread. Added a couple of stone beads to the ends. Glued the back page to a dark brown Mi-Tientes cardstock. I rubber stamped the flower (Time to Stamp part of "Flowers & Leaves") with Versa Mark Dew Drops stamp pad "Jumbo Java" and colored it in with some diluted magenta colored gouache and added Schmincke Rich Pale Gold metallic powder.  I wrote the quote using a script type nib and various colors of gouache that had the gold metallic powder floating on top. The "I" is one of Suzanne's new Caps Rubber stamp set.

Quote: If you could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change. Buddha.
