Gothic Arch Challenge


This is the first week to participate in the weekly GOTHIC ARCH CHALLENGE and our theme for this week is SCHOOL. I'm still trying to become comfortable with this form of art and am finding it challenging and difficult for me but a lot of fun too.

For my School Days Gothic Arch I used one of my favorite stamps from Paperbag Studios. I have to tell you something about this little girl. My husband carries only one photo of me in his wallet. It is my little school photo when I was in Kindergarten! (My mother gave it to him to have). Anyway, I look a lot like this little girl with the same haircut. hee hee hee :)

The background stamp is....can you read what it says? It is part of the Pledge of Allegiance. The stamp is from Stampabilities. Do the children still recite the pledge to the flag in school?

Patterned paper is from Basic Grey and Daisy D's.

Reading, writing and arithmetic are computer generated onto basic grey paper. Then I added the letter beads to spell out school days and found a small scrap of tape measure grossgrain ribbon.

I hope you enjoy.
