I had a great morning! Just played around a bit and decided to do a collage for Ethel's challenge, but decided to incorporate another challenge into this one! It's a Gothic Arch challenge, on ink-stains.
I am not the best with collage, it truly is a challenge for me, as I tend to like things a bit more organized, and have a hard time just letting go! lol I traced the template for the gothic arch, then wrote a verse from Titanic around the arch, I know you probably can't read it, but it says "Near, Far, wherever you are, I believe that the heart does go on. Once more, you open the door, and you're here in my heart, and my heart will go on and on." Oh I loved the movie, and this song seems perfect for this picture, (thanks for the great idea Holly!) Then I had to use a found object, a button. I had to use a photo, or magazine piece, so I used a collage sheet from Artchix. Also used Stampers Anonymous scratch stamp, SU french script, and Stamp barn floral border. I even used some rub-ons on this, which I have NEVER used before, but have alot of! lol I am surprised they work so well, going to have to start using them more!
I was going to scan this on a piece of black c/s, but I didn't want you to think it was a card, so I just left the white in the background. Might go ahead and scan on black anyway, I think it would look better! LOL As you all know, I am still not getting along with my camera! lol
Thanks for looking, and thank you for the challenge Ethel!!!
Off to create some more! lol
