Dogs…

…………is the challenge on Gothic Arches today.  I’m a real dog person so it’s a great theme as far as I’m concerned.  I was looking through my images and found two which I got from Nancy Dooren’s free downloads and as I couldn’t make up my mind which to use, decided to use both, make two arches and join them together as a diptych!

I printed the images and mounted them onto card, cut into an arch shape and then painted round the images first with gesso and then with a mixture of acrylics.  I added a bit of stamping in the background and the computer generated quote, then added some eyelets and tied together with a little string. 

I really enjoyed making this, hope you like it.
