GOTHIC ARCHES - Open Theme


I finally was able to finish this for the weekly Gothic Arches challenge--so much has been going on here the past few days, with a daughter and 4 year-old granddaughter needing a place to stay for the past 3 nights because they're in the middle of moving, and caring for the little one who is now sick, etc. Today I have some free time (yippee!) and so I met my other daughter for coffee, stopped by a little antique store here in town and bought some really pretty lace, and now I'm actually getting to play with my stash of images and art supplies! You can't tell by the photo that the edges are even and are glittered because the photo program I used cropped the arch unevenly, but you can get the gist of it if you click on the photo to see the arch up close. The little lass in the nest is from Paper Whimsy--I bought some collage sheets last year (or maybe it was the year before????) and discovered them the other day in one of my cigar boxes. (And, no, I don't smoke cigars, ha ha!) I've think this little gal is so precious, and wonder who she was and where she lived, so long ago. Wouldn't it be fun if the pictures could move the way they do in the Harry Potter books, and tell us a story? Oh, I do live in a dream world, as my dad used to say!
