Gothic Arches and the Moon
After visting a few blogs including Nat B'sI wandered over to a new challenge blog by Nancy James. The above Gothic Arch is my first which ended up becoming a door. I've used a scrap piece of cardstock that I had embossed with one of my Cuttlebug embossing plates. I then used several paints including Payne's Grey, Cerulean Blue, Metallic Antique Copper, Metallic Peridot and Metallic Silver Stirling Acrylics to create the aged look. I added a Collectionslock and a die cut piece again from Cuttlebug, all having the same treatment as the main piece. Where to with this piece now....hmmm...it may sit on the shelf awaiting a new home or inspiration to open.
The Enchantress of the Moon was my second piece that I created with the Gothic Arches blog challenge directly in mind. I don't often paint, rather using stamped images or collage, but I felt the need for a bit of painting this arvo. Thanks for coming over to look at my art. Cheers!
