I just finished Sandee's gothic arch for our Altered Chix group...it was one of those projects that took me several days to complete because kept working on it a bit, putting it down and coming back to it later...I was trying to do one thing and my muse wanted something else...much more somber...but I finally gave in to her and this is the end result...hope Sandee likes it, her theme was earth tones & birds. :))
The front and back have lots of textures and layers...embossing powder, fibers and lace along with shipping tape transfers, paper and transparencies.

My friend Dawn Gold invited me to join an Altered Book Round Robin with her so I did and while it has been a bit time-consuming to get the book all ready to go...I am having fun with it and am looking forward to seeing what each of the 11 other artists create in my book...and what I will create in theirs. :))
Now, I just need to write some "instructions" and off the book goes to travel the world to return to me in one year full of amazing wonderful exotic art. Farewell book...journey well.

I just absolutely love love love this new skinny gothic arch template that we are using for a fabric arch mingle over at the Paper Whimsy Art Forum. The height lends itself to so many additional creative thoughts...and techniques. I used a variety of processes and supplies including but not limited to stamping, embossing, distressed embossing & ink, stenciling, grungeboard, ribbons, rivets, brads, charms, beadwork, embossed velvet...and on it goes. I only needed to make 3 for the mingle but as you can see, I kind of got carried away. More to come, I'm sure! :)) Here are the five I made so far...front and back of each. Which one is your favorite?
