Gothic Arch part 3

UPDATE-I'm going to put myself out on a limb and link this one to a Gothic Arches challenge.  Click HERE to see the others!

Arch 3 uses the layered collage technique and this was a tough one for me.  I'd never tried this before and spent a little too much time picking out the layers then stressed over the ripping and gouging.  I really like how it turned out, though, and will do layering again.

I'm not sure that it's done, I feel that something's missing...
Roni's left the binding options open so I'm not sure how I'm going to pull everything together when we're done.  I think I'll wait until the series is done before making the decision.  Once I know how I'm going to bind them, I'll probably add more to each one.

#4 is started - having a blast!


  1. It looks great to me... not a technique I've used but will be having a go TFS

  2. This is lovely and rich. I love the layered collage technique and I use it for both my regular collages and beeswax collage. Did you use Gel Medium? I find it easier. It looks great to me, but I often add effects, such as distress ink edging, Perfect Pearls of even 3-D items a day or two after creating a collage. I love the statement! It pulls it all together.
