Springtime in Paris


Paris is the theme this week at Gothic Arches and the 1 st thing that came to my mind was Springtime in Paris. I had a definite picture in my head for this arch, this isn't it!! Somehow I really had a hard time interpreting this one the way I wanted. But I still like how it came out. I used cloud scissors to cut out the arch cuz I wanted to relay nice big fluffy clouds in the sky, and I used a gorgeous B.G. paper that turned out to be too busy for what I wanted so I toned it down with Gesso. Oh well, here it is.

Hi M-B

This is really neat! The colours seem really right. Not sure why are you not thrilled but the whole thing is nice. The patterned Fleur-de-lis is especially nice.

Hi Mary-Beth.......this is gorgeous. Now I am going to have to go break out those cloud scissors that I have had forever and use them. This arch looks fabulous with the sides cut like that.

Hope all is well. How is the weather? Not that I am trying to rub it in that it is so warm here, lol. Going to go get Montana a little pool so he can play in :)
