Joy of Christmas/Children


This is for Gothic Arches this week.
I have so many wonderful vintage images of children but the ones I love the most are the angel ones. I thought it was perfect that I had one holding toys!

I am not terribly happy with something I did on this arch. I listened to something someone told me a while back that you can attach vellum with a glue stick, no problem. HA, huge problem. I won't be so lazy the next time and I will go for my vellum tape! Despite that, I'm happy with this!

Someone told me that these arches are addicting, they were so right! LOL

Nope, I think I'm going to have to redo this! Darn!!!

This is a really heart-warming arch, I simply love it and I also enjoy seeing those lovely images at the top of your blog!!
I always stitch vellum, it really doesn't like wet media!

I think this is LOVELY! And like Freida, I too stitch my vellum, and transparencies also. Had not heard of "vellum tape" . . . maybe this is an option I need to try!

Beautiful arch. Have you tried Making Memories Vellum glue - I find it really effective.
If you hadn't told us about it, we'd have thought that was what you'd intended!

you arch is just gorgeous! love the images and vellum accents - it has a warm glow about it. I was thinking about you the other day - have Sarah McLachlan's "Wintersong" playing and she does a lovely remake of Gordon's song "Winter Night" - :)
