Gothic Arch - Flowers

The Gothic Arch theme this week is flowers so I am celebrating spring! It is such a lovely time of year here - the worst of the cold weather has gone and the really hot weather is still a little way off (it doesn't usually wait for the official start to summer, however!).

My arch is a little light-hearted spring indulgence - a nice floral themed scrapbook paper as a background and also an additional flower, a vintage image, a few pieces of paper lace, some sanding of the edges, rub-on letters and lots of freehand doodles and dots. No stamping (I just realized!)

And while we are talking about Spring, this Sunday, Annie and I are going for a wander at our town's Spring Festival! I haven't been for a number of years so I am really looking forward to it.

Love your doodling on the arch! It's a gorgeous piece. The paper lace divided in individual flowers is so clever.

Lovely spring arch. I also expect to see autumn colors and themes as that's what we have here in the Midwest USA. Funny to see it's spring elsewhere.
