Gothic Arch Challenge - School

Tonight I had a bit of a play and came up with my entry for the first of the Gothic Art Challenges - the theme is School. I couldn't resist doing a vintage collage - I've used some Collections and Tim Holtz collage pieces as the main items. The background, which included some stamping has ended up being pretty well covered up. I don't think it shows up much in the scan but the sparkle is from a finishing spray with Moon Shadow Mist in copper. These challenges are going to be fun - I like the idea of continuing to work with a consistent shape/size. I think I will turn the arches into a book once I have enough of them.

I don't even know what to say. You make the most beautiful things! Don't read my post about making the Christmas cards. It'd only embarrass me. REALLY.
