Gothic Arches "Stars"
The theme at Gothic Arches is stars this week.The faux metal look on the the frame of my arch was created using a technique described in the December issue of the UK publication "Craft Stamper". It is metallic card, embossed with the help of a cuttlebug folder and then painted with a dark colour of acrylic paint which is rubbed into the relief created in the embossing process. Before drying most of it is then rubbed off to create the look of old metal.

The Three Muses "In your dreams"
The theme at the Three Muses is Dreams. I'm afraid to say with about 70 Christmas cards to make, I decided to cmbine this one with a Christmas card. I've called it "Dreaming of Snow". I do dream of snow as I love the white stillnes and serenity a soft layer brings on a crisp winter morning. Here in Scotland we don't get many of these. Winter usually means damp, cold, soggy rain, but hey, here's hoping...

Gothic Arches "Leighton"
The theme at Gohic Arches is to use an image from a painting by Lord Frederic Leighton.
I had so much fun with this challenge. I chose one of his images,(thanks for the link Nancy!) worked on it in photoshop then printed it and integrated it into a collage using lace, tissue paper and various Stewart Gill paints.
I recently discovered a brilliant way to construct a gothic arch in pretty much any size. All you need is a compass and some (very basic) knowledge of geometry. If you are interested, just email me and I will send you instructions.
