Gothic Arches – Grunge

The year has started grunge, with Gothic Arches. My research for this topic took me to Wiki, where I was informed that Grunge music includes the likes of Pearl Jam and Nirvana (cool).  The look includes torn jeans and more of an attitude than look. And you can only be grunge by not being grunge – or something like that! So here is my (non) grunge piece:



Background painted with walnut ink, flourish stamps from Boutique Grunge set by See D’s (stamped in Adirondak Espresso), lettering and clock face by Collections. Wings from Grungeboard. French script stamp by Stamp Oasis, with Sepis ink. A little gold paint also added.

I had lots of fun making this. The arch size is a great format and my ideas seem to flow really well around the space.

Happy creating,
