Trying for an "Asian" look...

I have been having a bit of a play tonight - as I do most nights after the small people have gone to bed - and have been trying to come up with an "Asian" look. Such a look would be quite simple with the Artfully Asian set that I am in love with but don't yet own, so I have had to think a bit outside the square. Here is how my attempt turned out: japanese bodacious

Colours are Very Vanilla and Not Quite Navy, which reminds me of the blue of traditional japanese fabrics, so that's the road I headed down. I tied some thin strips of paper onto the horizontal band, which are kind of origami-ish. The wording stamp is neither here nor there as far as the theme goes - one of the Kanji stamps would have been better, but I don't have them either :-(
