LANTERNS...

I've joined a site called Gothic Arches
there is a challenge set every week
to design an image incorporating the theme
using mixed media, stamping and a quote
in the arch

***

There may be more rules
Patty from Magpie's nest is helping me
as I'm not totally sure yet !
***
Here are my first attempts for next week
I need to make some arch templates
though for these I have incorporated the arch

A bit more tweaking & I'll get there hopefully

It's good as it sets me a challenge to work to

  1. Lovely to find you here in the land of blog Penny (two blogs = WOWEE!)... I see you are a heart fancier ... me too!
    I forgot to tell you about adding a link to Gothic Arches on your blog posts for the challenges so it's clickable back to them :)
    Your arch creations are really lovely and so original! The Chinese lanterns are a brilliant touch. Mine in the garden always look less than perfect!
    The Gothic Arches challenges certainly are always fun, glad you joined in!

  3. Lovely photographs Penny, lovely colours

    I'm sure you'll soon get the hang of the arches. It is a great challenge group. I sometimes see some of them on my travels and all are wonderful. I belong to an inchy challenge group but haven't made any for ages! I need to get back to it!

    Bye for now and thanks for entering the giveaway! Good luck with yours!

  12. Great blog, Bad Penny. I love your black and orange creations. I can only repeat what Ann (Taluula) has said above. There are positively no rules at the Three Muses challenge. Any type of art, any "take" on one theme, no matter how bizarre!! We are so lucky to have a group of very creative people working in digital art, stamping art, crafty art, hand painted art, etc, and each week we never see two entries that look even vaguely the same which means everyone is doing her own thing and that is what we love.
    Cheers from Marie, also known as Ozstuff.
