FOLLOW ME TO
MY NEW ART BLOG HERE I would love your company.

A New Year and a New beginning... I have created a new blog filled with old and new art. It is time for me to focus on something new. I will be leaving this blog open for inspiration and so I can look back at what I have achieved in the future but I will be adding no further content here.

Gothic Arch Challenge

The Gothic Arch challenge this week has an open theme so I decided to enter this arch that I have experimented on. The image is from Crafty individuals and I added Papermania fabric flowers. I have been itching to do some writing on something and though it's not the neatest writing I've ever done (I will learn to pencil it in first next time to make sure it fits...lol) I really enjoyed playing as usual.
I used tiny seed beeds and Anita's clear gloss for the centre of the flowers...
because although I didn't have any bling on my arch I had to have some sparkle :) I used some ribbon too... big deal for me...lol

Thanks for looking

hugs

Chris xx

Great arch Chris and the writing looks fab, I don't trust mine to look like anything other than drunken spider rambling about, I don't even journal on scrapbook layouts!
