Swap-Bot Nepal ATC

For the 8th in a swap series for Asia on Swap-Bot, this ATC is for Nepal. Next up is Thailand and then the continent of Asia will be the last. It's been a fun series, we've been to China, Japan, India, Turkey, Mongolia, Viet Nam, and Malaysia.

Nepali Buddha

I altered an old image of a Nepali buddha with Spica pens, dyed cotton twill floral tape with alcohol ink, used distress inks, added a memo pen with a poem in Nepali script (sorry, no translation and it isn't upside down) and then used gold pen around the outside. This is now on its way to Australia. 

The temperatures have warmed up here and we have the windows open. It's really dark towards the North and West, so I hope we have more rain than the few showers last night. Leaves are changing and falling now at a rapid pace and last night I noticed that the moon was almost full. In a few days, it will be the October harvest moon. And then in a week or so, we will change back to standard time. And then I will be counting the days until Spring!


  1. I love the colors on that, very bright.

  2. That is a very colorful buddha. I like the little memo pen with the poem in it. Nice touch. Love you!

  3. Such an incredible ATC! Love the colors!
