Japanese Garden

I seriously love origami!  When I saw that Child's Play was doing an origami challenge, I had to make time to get that one done.  I also saw the magazine cover challenge at Paper Crafter's Corner and fell in love with the design!  Unfortunately, I was too late to play along there, but decided to use the inspiration anyway.

I visited the Japanese Garden in Portland about a year and a half ago, so I found some photos that fit the design and laid out the layout.  I folded some origami grass, fan, and flowers, added interesting bits of paper and stamps, put the origami on top.  Really loved this challenge!
