The swap over at the Art 'n' Soul flickr group for September had the Title Gothic Arches.
We were asked to make 3 Gothic Arches using the template provided covering both sides of the arch and to attach together to make a book. The theme was Musical Instruments/anything Music or song Related.
After much procrastination I finally came up with the idea of using quotes by famous people that were music/song related. A quick search of the web provided me with several free sites that had quotes listed and I quickly selected six that I thought appropriate and that I could incorporate into the pages.
I was determined not to make it all pinky even though I love pink so I chose pale lilac and grey bazzill card stock from my stash. I have a musical notes embosing folder so I cut the card using the template and then ran it through my Big shot using the folder. I sandwiched a mauve and a grey together with thin card in between to make each page more stable. I made the flowers from a mixture of white paper coloured with water colour pencils , then spritzed over with water and purple paper which I chalked over.A splosh of glossy accents and a sprinkling of tiny beads finished them off. Finally I joined the arches together with purple organza ribbon from my stash.
This is the front using the lilac card.
