Gothic Arches Challenge *Harvest*



For this triptich arch I used a harvest photo with pumpkins and corn-cobs, which I blurred a little in my photo programme before printing it, to give it a softer look and to emphasise the colours more than the objects. Cut an arch out of embossed paper, which I distressed with TH ancient linen and wild honey. The photo was cut to match, but half a centimeter smaller all round. Added a lace doiley which was distressed with the same inks and some scroll, bird and flower motives. Was fun to make, as always, and successfully kept me from doing my h*******k! Thanks for looking!

  5. Beautiful, as ever. Great idea to blur the photo a bit so the colours have more effect, and i love how you've photographed the arch with some co-ordinating flowers on your angel, nice little touch. CoB
