Paper Trader’s Gothic Arch Swap


I came across this widget that adds quotes to your blog, being a 'wordy' person (the lovliest compliment I have ever recieved (from Kelsey) I thought it would be a great one to have on my site.  I LOVE it…. I love quotes….. I like thinking about them & what they mean & how they apply….. & why whom ever said it, did.  I know you'll like it, & perhaps this may even inspire art!Pt_arches_back_web Pt_arches_fronts_web   

As you can see, I have been working on Gothic Arches this weekend.  I have been really stuck on these, which is TOTALLY stupid, because it is one of my fav. topics AND shapes…….but thereGothic_jewels_web you go, there is no accounting for 'artistic ferver' sometimes you just have to muddle through.  Gisele graciously offered me an out, however, I have been hand making the charms for some time now & have made jewellery pieces with initials on for each of the other 10 participants, had my arches, cut, painted, sorted, images ready, but just couldn't get it together.  I feel as though my work is looking all the same at the moment, & that is frustrating me!  IN my 'stuckness', I missed the other 'weekly' arch challenge & didn't do a whole lot for a couple of days.  So I have made eleven of these…..all a little bit different.  6 are for the swap, 1 as a hostess gift to Gisele and 4 for my own deco.


so my pages have become a 'deco' book and I love them all together – here's the cover I created for them – using texture paste, goth jewellery, & some English postage stamps that seemed to fit the theme.  They're probably not quite right historically, but they look ok in the compostion.IMG_1295_resize IMG_1293_resize
