This morning I had this wonderful arch inspired by an Egyptian Cartouche from Judy Bartel in Canada. I'm afraid I don't know if Judy has a blog or not, but if I find out I will post about it again. This arch is so beautiful I would like to see a lot more of her work. Even the envelope itself is a work of art. She put a mixture of colourful stamps on it.
Labels are very convenient for envelopes and parcels especially as we can print them out on the Internet, but I feel sad that real stamps are becoming rare.
It's a good feeling to be crossing out some things off my 'To Do' list. This arch was supposed to be done in July. This Summer in the UK has been so wet everything has grown more than usual and I have tried to capture the foliage in my arch.
My next arch is to be influenced by Gothic architecture and Chester Cathedral seems to be a good starting point. Here are some photos I took yesterday.
