Gothic Arch Weekly Challenge

As I searched the internet for ideas and inspiration the other night, I stumbled upon this blog--

http://gothicarches.blogspot.com/

--where you are offered a weekly art challenge to do with a theme in some sort of gothic arch-shape. This week's challenge theme is "Correspondence". Just the impetus I needed to get those creative juices flowing! I dug through boxes, drawers and files for various collage papers, saved images, bits and doo-dads until I had the perfect mix of what I wanted it to look like:


It didn't scan very well, but you get the idea. I used images from TheGraphicsFairy, PaperWhimsy, and KeeperOfTheNest on Etsy--and had alot of fun creating! I'm looking forward to future challenges. =)
