Here is the Arch I have just finished for Arlee who suggested using Baroque art for inspiration with hot colours and copper and she wanted something funky. This is not all that funky, but it fits in with the rest. It was fun to make Arlee. It uses paper fabric I made especially for it, tiny felt rolled buttons I made and rolled in PVA then painted orange and then added some treasure Gold and machine made buttonholes. Some painted laces and ribbon, oh, yes and a stamp to finish.
This was based on The Laughing Cavalier by Franz Hals a Baroque artist in 1624.
Now I'm off to finish a page on Walking like and Egyptian for Alis Clair and a birthday card for Lynda and a postcard for Cyber Fyber.
