August - Gothic Arch Challenge



I completed my first challenge - Gothic Arches Challenge before midnight. Anyone who knows me; knows I am a slow creator. I just pulled all my stuff out, I have to say I was inspired by the "Super Sisters" (Toni and Shawn), "The Wind Beneath My Wings" (Paper Drama), and the wonderful Tim Holtz. I used my House of 3 Halloween printable because I didn't want to do anything cutesy. Those ladies on this challenge are a force to be reckoned with; not to toot my own horn, but I think I held my own. I love to watch Youtube when Mr. Bletzer is not sharing the TV; yesterday I met YouTube Celebrity - Yolanda and I used her technique in which she stamps an image and covers it with a paint wash, you can still see the image. I wanted to use grunge board, distress inks and of course UTEE, I made these really cute tiny rosette which were supposed to be for something else. I said I would incorporate something about my dad in all my challenges... his name was JESUS; yes like Jesus Christ... hence the "J" on a TH memo pin from Studio Garage Band esty store. I love it and I busted it out in an hour... thank you to those who inspire me... this is for you!!!
