arches!!!!

I have missed doing the Gothic arch challenge for 2 weeks and I really missed it!!

Therefore, for this weeks challenge by Nellie, By The Sea, I have created 2 arches. One in an oriental theme using one of my favourite images, I just love the feel of it. And a humorous one, I must have a sick sense of humour, cuz that's where my brain goes whenever something's not working out the way I had planned. The bathing beauties got caught in the rain. This reminds me of my childhood when we went to the beach at Point Pelee when it was nice and sunny, only to be totally clouded over 2 hrs later and have to make a mad dash to pick up all the stuff and get to the car. I don't know why we didn't want to get wet in the rain, we already were!!! LOL

Hope you like them!
the raindrops are made with Liquid Crystal which I dropped on the paper and tried to drag into a drop shape.

I love both of these M-B! I understand about not having time to blog - I wish there was a magic wand that could help us find more art time and blog time! :)
