1st page in my Asian fabric book for a round robin

This is the front and back of my page for my Asian fabric book. We are starting a new round robin in Fabric in Altered Art and had intended for all players to have Asian themed books. We decided that everyone could pick their theme but I think we still ended up with 5 or 6 Asian themed books for the 8 players. One of the exceptions is a western themed book. Yee Haw! Love those wild west books!! The front of the Asian page is an image of Chinese shadow puppets. It is matted on a piece of Asian themed fabric that has gold metallic threads. Another favorite of mine. The embellishments include 2 Asian coins and an interesting embellishment that came in a set. It is stitched in place. The back has an image of a sketch of a village. I tried to scan or take a pic of the cover but not much luck with that. It is made of a brocade and has been made to be reversible. It has a button tab closure. I will try another picture later because it really is a beautiful fabric. This one is ready to go in the mail!
