GOTHIC ARCHES-The Celebration Continues!


Gothic Arches is continuing their 2-year birthday celebration with the theme of Cupcakes. I have read that cupcakes are called "Fairy Cakes" in England, and I thought it would be fun to make an arch with a fairy! I began with background paper from K & Co., took a little guy and a cupcake from collage sheets I had in my "stash" from Lisa's Altered Art and made a tiny crown for him, and added some glitter to his wings and crown. I placed him on a page I had from an early 1900s children's book and added some flourishes to my arch, added some flower stickers, a paper flower and a little more glitter, and there you have it--a fairy with a fairy cake! As always, you can get a better look at the arch by clicking on the photo. And again, congrats to Gothic Arches!!!!!!
