Gothic Arch




This is a gothic arch for a mingle I'm doing in one of my groups. My partner this month is the beautiful SANDEE (I would place a link here, but I, uh, don't know how to do that yet. So see her link in the list to the right). Her colors are earth tones in the theme of birds, nests or eggs. I wasn't sure what I was going to do, so I just decided to sit down and see what came out and this is what happened. I think I kind of like it. heh heh! It is hard to see in the scan, but the green paper has gold threads through it and the three sequins on the back are also gold to match. I used purple fiber on the front and a bit of purple mulberry paper on the back because she loves that color. The asian paper is from my amazing Dia de los Muertos Secret Sister DONNA and was the perfect piece of paper for this project. In fact - it was the first thing I found when I sat down and it became my inspiration! So thank you sweet Donna! I hope Sandee likes what I made. It's my first gothic arch ever and I found the shape very cool to work with!
