ATC Arch


Created for the TGIF Challenge where the Theme is ATC Gothis Arches. I cut my arch from matt card stock, attach an old book page, then sponged it randomly with gesso. I then added colourwash sprays in Bluebell, lilac & Buttercup, and heat dried, adding a few more sprays as it was heated. Finally the collage image was applied and the edges of the arch sponged with Adirondack Denim ink.
